USE OF VIBRATION IN PLACING PAVEMENT CONCRETE-OHIO EXPERIENCE

THE USE OF VIBRATORY METHODS OF FINISHING ON THREE CONCRETE PAVEMENT JOBS, IN 1930, 1933, AND 1935, IS DESCRIBED. TWO DIFFERENT VIBRATORY MACHINES WERE USED IN 1935. DATA ON THE RELATIONS BETWEEN VIBRATION, COMPRESSIVE AND TRANSVERSE STRENGTH, CONSISTENCY AND CEMENT FACTOR ARE PRESENTED. THIS EXPERIENCE DEMONSTRATED THAT BY THIS METHOD CONCRETE COULD BE PLACED WITH LOWER WATER-CEMENT RATIO AND LESS SAND CONTENT THAN WITH OTHER METHODS IN COMMON USE, WITH ACCOMPANYING INCREASE IN 7-DAY COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH. THE TWO FINISHERS USED GAVE EQUALLY SATISFACTORY RESULTS. TEST SPECIMENS MADE BY THE STANDARD RODDING METHOD WERE FOUND TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE VIBRATED CONCRETE. AN INTERESTING SIDELIGHT WAS THE EFFECT DUE TO DIFFERENT BRANDS OF CEMENT. /AUTHOR/
