Abstract:This paper pioneers in the field of analyses of the physical characteristics of plastic concrete when placed under water. No endeavor is made to record the field procedures except insofar as they are related to the research as set up by observations, tests in the prototype I and in models. The conclusions are con- sistent with the limited number of repetitive readings. It suggests by observation of certain basic principles that greatly improved physical characteristics of con- crete may be developed under water by modifying the field procedures to accommodate the indicated behavior from the numerious experiments. It is the hope of the authors that observation of several of these principles which appear to extend the heretofore limited knowledge of this field of en- gineering may lead to continued use of tremie con- crete for engineering problems that require accurate and intricate able concrete. placing of a dense, impermeable, durable concrete
