Description: Potamology Report
Abstract: The general purposes of the experiments described herein were to determine the practicability of placing sand-asphalt revetment under water by gravity flow through an insulated metal chute or tremie and to develop an economical method of increasing the fluidity of hot sand-asphalt mixtures for use as revetment. The specific purpose of the experiments on the underwater placement of sand asphalt by means of a chute or tremie was to permit a visual determination of the practicability of such a process. It was generally understood at the beginning of the investigation that no studies would be required for refinements in the design of facilities for placing the material or for determining the behavior of the mlxture after its placement in this manner on a sloping or irregular bank. The general impression obtained from various conversations with representatives of the Mississippi River Commission office indicated that it was desired to demonstrate that because of the high temperature of the mixture, its flow would not be affected by the presence of water.
