Engineering Properties of Soil-Lime Mixes
The relation between sample preparation and curing procedures, and the engineering properties of compacted soil-lime mixes was investigated. Four natural Oklahoma soils of different origins...

Contractors and Production of Durable Air-Entrained Concrete
The contractor-modification of air-entrained concrete mix proportions and production practices to suit actual construction conditions is covered in detail. The effects of alternate mix...

Expansive Soils—Geotechnical Problems Are in Hand; Now Need to Familiarize Nonengineers
Expansive soils damage thousands of buildings, many miles of highway each year. How and why these types of clays expand is explained. How geotechnical engineers in Colorado, Texas and...

Control of Expansive Concretes During Construction
Persons who design and construct structures using expansive concretes necessarily make many decisions affecting the behavior of these concretes. Some of the factors affecting expansion...

Objectives of Water Quality Planning
Planning is a sterile effort if it does not produce a viable procedure for reaching its objectives. Our political process is presently atuned to crisis reaction, producing short-range...

Strength Development of Concrete Exposed in Winter
The relationship of the strength of standard laboratory-cured cylinders to the strength of concrete in columns and slabs and to field-cured cylinders exposed under winter conditions have...

Wearability of PC Concrete Pavement Finishes
Loss of surface texture due to wear in highway pavements results in loss of skid resistance and thereby a reduction in potential safety. The wearability (the resistance to wear) of a concrete...

Economic Aspects of Curing Mass Concrete

Use of Curing Compounds on Horizontal Construction Joints

Application of Epoxy Resins in Tunnel Lining Concrete Repair
Concrete lining in a large diameter tunnel spillway damaged by cavitation erosion caused by variable high flows up to 20,000 cfs was repaired by use of bonded concrete, and epoxy bonded...

Strength Properties of Chemically Solidified Soils
Injection of chemical grout is a valid means of strengthening sandy soils. Submission of valid strength data is recommended as a condition for use of any particular grout material. Pertinent...

Investigation of a Wood Curing Waste
The investigation of an industrial waste should be carried out prior to or in conjunction with the design and construction of the waste producing facility. To determine the characteristics...

Effect of Compaction on Strength of Soil-Cement
The effect of the method of compaction on the unconfined compressive strength of soil-cement mixtures for different molding water contents; cement contents, and curing time was investigated....

Refuse-Sludge Compositing in Windrows and Bins
Composting was investigated at Chandler, Ariz, in 2 runs involving 4 windrows and 25 aeration bins of ground refuse and refuse-sludge mixtures; composting materials were turned average...

Research on Composting of City Refuse and Nightsoil
Results of several years of research in Japan, conducted with financial and technical assistance from World Health Organization; evaluation of high rate mechanical digesters and forced...
