WRAPPING IT UP WITH NYLON FABRIC FORMS

Techniques with nylon fabric forms are described which are adaptable to erosion control, underwater concreting, encasing piles, lining tunnels, producing drains and other uses. These nylon forms are flexible containers that can be filled by pressure injection with fluid fine-aggregate concrete. They permit controlled bleeding of mix water through the fabric, which reduces the water cement ratio. This causes rapid stiffening, produces high strength, and provides exceptional durability. The double-wall fabric comes in two designs: a quilted type capable of relieving hydrostatic pressure, and another type with a uniform cross-section for use where the primary objective is impermeability and a low coefficient of hydraulic friction.
