Description: Technical memorandum
Preface:This technical memorandum covers one phase of a rather comprehensive investigation of waterstops for concrete structures that is being conducted by the Waterways Experiment Station tor the Office, Chief of Engineers. The phase reported here is concerned with tests to evaluate placement or rubber waterstops by proposed methods that would eliminate the necessity for split concrete forms. Other phases of the work are concerned with the structural behavior of the waterstop during differential movement or concrete units forming the Joint and watertightness of Joints using rubber waterstops. These phases will be covered in other reports. Acknowledgment is made to Messrs. D. A. Buzzell and W. R. Waugh of the Office, Chief of Engineers, tor their contribution in the planning and guidance of the test program. Engineers of the Soils Division, Waterways Experiment Station, actively engaged in this study were Messrs. W. J. Turnbull, C. R. Foster, J. L. McRae, and W. H. Larson. The field test blocks of mass concrete were constructed under the supervision or Messrs. T. B. Kennedy and c. H. Willetts of the Concrete Division, Waterways Experiment Station, who also supervised the coring operations.
