Abstract:

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the bulk specific gravity of, and the percentage of seawater absorbed by, three precast lightweight concretes as a consequence of extended submersion in 66F seawater at simulated oceanic depths of 1 ft, 40 ft, and 350 ft respectively, nearly 0 psi, 18 psi, and 155 psi hydrostatic.
