Abstract : Glen Canyon Dam, a concrete arch structure about 700 feet high, is located on the Colorado River approximately 15 miles upstream from Lees Ferry, Arizona. A concrete core testing program was included in the specifications for the purpose of studying the effects of long-time curing on various properties of interior and exterior mass concrete in this structure with particular regard to compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, Poisson's ratio, homogeneity, etc. Thermal coefficient of expansion tests were also conducted and the results included in this report. This report presents the initial results of tests performed on 10-in. diameter concrete cores drilled from Glen Canyon Dam. (Author)
