Author(s): W . Mack Angas, E. M. Shanley, and J. A. Erickson
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 249-280
Abstract:Points out the advantages of the tremie method of placing concrete, and the unrivalled speed which the method affords in the construction of large con- crete dry docks. Describes in detail the numerous unusual problems in mixing, transporting, and plac- ing 450,000 cu yd of concrete which arose when a central mixing plant, concrete pumps, and tremie pipes were employed for large underwater construction, and denote the attempts, largely successful, to solve these oroblems. A general description of the methods useb in the construction of dry docks is given, but normal features of the operations have been slighted in favor of the more useful discus- sion covering the difficulties encountered and their solution.
