HIGH DENSITY CONCRETE: MEASURING, MIXING, TRANSPORTING, AND PLACING

Recommended methods and procedures for measuring, mixing, transporting, and placing high density concretes which are used principally for radiation shielding in nuclear construction are presentedd. Also covered are recommendations on cement, high denisty aggregates, water, and admixtures. Mixture proportioning of high density concrete is discussed. Recommendations for preplaced aggregate high density concrete are also included, together with suitable grout proportions. Mixing equipment, form construction, placing procedures, and methods of consolidation are described. Quality control, inspection, and testing are emphasized, and a list of references is included. /AUTHOR/
