Abstract : This paper presents the results of a literature search to explore the adaptability for deep ocean use of present subaqueous concrete placement methods. The advantages and disadvantages of each of the following methods are discussed: tremie, bottom-dump bucket, prepacked, Fabriform, precast, and pumped concrete. The logical manner of comparing methods is by prototypic construction in the deep ocean. (Author)
