800-TON PRECAST UNITS FORM DRY-DOCK ENCLOSURE

Construction of new 705 ft long 111 ft wide and 36 ft deep dry-dock in Kobe, Japan, is described. Concrete blocks, with two lengthwise walls joined by four evenly spaced cross walls, were cast off site and carried by a 1100 ton floating derrick to site of 705-ft dry-dock. The forms set between the blocks allow concrete to be pumped into the place to complete the joints. Concrete was pumped to sea bottom to fill special forms.
