Information on Placing Concrete Under Water
Where can we get information on tremie concreting?
The subject is covered in two articles published in
"Concrete Down the Spout," July 1968, page 247, and
"Placing Concrete Under Water," December 1968, page 453. Both are available online. One 12-page chapter titled "Placement of Tremie Concrete," by Ben Gerwick, can be found in the American Concrete Institute
Symposium on Concrete Construction in Aqueous Environments, SP-8, published in 1964. The 160-page book is available on microfilm as OP No. 54,501 from University Microfilm, Ann Arbor, Michigan for $8.45. A special method of tremie concreting was described in a more recent five-page article, "Underwater Transporting of Concrete with the Hydro-valve," by Louis C. Schoewert and Henri F. Hillen, in the ACI
Journal for September 1972, page 584.
