Abstract: Prepared under the auspices of The Construction Research Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the general objective of Mass Concrete Construction: A Study Toward More Economical Construction by Cost Reductions Through Construction Methods and Techniques is to sketch out the scope of the problem and identify potential areas for change and improvement which would accommodate a system of continuous concrete production and placement. The specific objectives of the study are a review of the present state of the art of concrete dam construction in the specific areas of batching, mixing, conveyance, placement and consolidation; a review of developments in these separate areas in the general concrete construction industry; and an analysis of a system of continuous concrete production and placement--examining its potential and the restraints and barriers for adoption of such a system.
