Cement Manufacture and Use
This book, Cement Manufacture and Use, consists of papers presented at an Engineering Foundation meeting held in Potosi, Missouri. These papers...

Fracture Mechanics Applied to Geotechnical Engineering
This proceedings, Fracture Mechanics Applied to Geotechnical Engineering, contains theoretical and experimental studies related to the formation,...

DSM Saves the Dam
The Miami Conservancy District built five flood control dams after the catastrophic flood of 1913 in Dayton, Ohio. Lockington Dam was one of these five hydraulic fill structures. The Ohio...

New Advances in Shotcrete Additives: The DELVO System
The DELVO system is a two component, nonchloride chemical system developed to control the dynamics of cement hydration. Concrete, treated with the DELVO system, can be kept in a plastic...

Ultrafine Cement Tests and Drilling Warm Springs Dam
Ultrafine cement was chosen by the Corps of Engineers for tertiary grouting the Warm Springs Dam because of its ultrafine particle size, low settlement, medium viscosity and longevity....

Development of High Performnance Shotcrete (Theoretical Considerations)
This paper presents some theoretical considerations for studies on high performance wet-mix shotcrete. A new laboratory shotcrete pump and rheometer are being developed to study the effects...

The Causticity of Accelerator for Shotcrete and its Impairment on Strength of Shotcrete
How on earth is the toxic and caustic injury of accelerator for shotcrete to operators and animals? How about its impairment on strength of shotcrete? The paper gives some reports and...

Manning's n From Experiments with Rainfall-Runoff on Portland Cement Concrete Surfaces
Experiments were conducted under artificial rainfall on Portland cement concrete (PCC) surfaces with variable mean texture depths (MTD) and slopes (S). Rain rates were varied up to 3 in/hr...

Bending of Retrofitted Test Foundation Walls
New repair methodology has been developed for residential construction that can be used to retrofit foundation bearing walls damaged by mine subsidence. The repair strengthens the foundation...

Interactive Digital Image Feature Analysis as Applied to Cement and Concrete Microstructural Investigations
A novel procedure involves interactive chemical image analysis of separable features in the backscattered image. In this procedure a backscatter image is acquired by the image analysis...

A Novel Approach to Develop a Performance Based Test for Rutting of Asphalt Concrete
Asphalt concrete consists of compacted granular aggregates mixed with viscoelastic asphalt cement. The predictive phenomenological models had limited success in explaining the origin and...

Portland Cement Concrete Apron Pavement Design Study for King Fahd International Airport in Saudi Arabia
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular 150/5320-6C used for design of portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements for airports does not account for the site-specific...

Use of Self-Cementing Fly Ashes as a Soil Stabilization Agent
Fly ash produced in the combustion of subbituminouns coals exhibits self-cementing characteristics that can be adapted to a wide range of stabilization applications. Ash treatment can...

Stabilization of South Texas Soils with Fly Ash
The expansive soils of south Texas have traditionally been stabilized with lime or Portland cement. As an alternative, a class F fly ash was tried to stabilize expansive soils obtained...
