Conference paper


The present investigation suggests feasibility of new tremie process of non-contacting with water for high qualities of underwater concrete. Experimental works in the laboratory based on the new concept were performed and defined successfully from the test results of lucid cylindrical vessels of 63φx300cm. At the same time, it was found that the possibilities of vibrating compaction and no water pollution were realized in the new process.
