Abstract: Proceedings of the Engineering Foundation Conference held at Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, California, May 14-18, 1972. Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Economical Construction of Concrete Dams contains dozens of papers covering a broad range of relevant issues in dam construction. Topics include concrete dam design and construction improvements, developments in cement technology, economic aspects of curing mass concrete, concrete strain capacity tests, gap-graded strain capacity tests, and concrete dam construction using earth compaction methods. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers working with the construction of concrete dams.
