Subject: Uplift Pressure of Wet Concrete?

List,

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?

Gary
