Abstract:
This, the second of three brief papers each describing some element of construction operations on the Contra Costa Canal, considers the effective use of transit mixers on a 9-mile section of the concrete lining. Five 4.34 cu yd capacity mixers delivered concrete to a canal lining machine which placed, vibrated and formed it in position described in the first of these contributions’.
