Title: Concrete Operations in the Concrete Ship Program
Author(s): Lewis H. Tuthill
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 137-180
Abstract:Describes only briefly the hulls constructed in the concrete ship program of the U. S. Maritime Com- mission but goes into more detail in connection with problems encountered and their solution in the course of these concrete operations. Construction joint procedure, lightweight aggregate concrete and mix control, handling, placing and vibration practice, curing, testing, and repair problems are described in the belief that much of this information is applica- ble to any concrete work of high standard. Design of hulls is not discussed except as construction is affected. The ships have not been in service suffi- ciently long to justify much discussion of their per-formance or durability.
