S.W. Twu, S.C. Lin, S.G. Chang

Abstract


A total of eleven new types of blocks are developed for this project. After performing a series of model tests for them and having a consideration of easy casting, two types of blocks are selected and presented here in this paper. They are named "Double U block" and "I block", respectively. The two have been compared with several existing types which have been widely used in Taiwan. It is shown that the Double U block is an excellent type of block with high stability and low reflection coefficient. The I block has an advantage of easy casting, although it is not outstanding in other characteristics.
