Abstract: Proceedings of the Engineering Foundation Research Committee, held at Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, California, March 1-5, 1970. Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Rapid Construction of Concrete Dams contains many papers covering a broad range of relevant issues in the construction of concrete dams. Topics include systems approach, economic considerations, special cement and admixtures, design of arch dams, design for gravity dams, foreign practices, and systems analysis of equipment and construction techniques for mixing, transporting, placing, and treating concrete for large dams. These proceedings will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers working with the rapid construction of concrete dams.
