Uplift Pressure of Wet Concrete?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I'm currently working with some 1980mm (78" dia.) penstocks at an old hydro plant that are being renovated or replaced.

I have to design the temporary tie-downs at the thrust blocks or support points when they pour concrete around them. I did a similar project about 15 years ago but I can't find my reference material.

Does anybody know the uplift pressure (buoyancy) of wet concrete?
