RE: Lateral Pressure

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Back in the "good old days", PCA put out a pamphlet ST-3 "Pressure of
Concrete on Formwork"  showing relationship to concrete temperature and rate
of filling (feet per hour).  Of course, this is not applicable to fly ash or
superplasticized mixes.  Has anyone seen any modern criteria?

	Does anyone have any information on the lateral pressure produced by
wet
	concrete?  I assume it must vary depending on how wet it is (ie a
slurry
	would produce a larger lateral force than a stiff mix).
