To all whom it may concern: A

.Be it known that I, AXEL E. OLANDER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Omaha, in the county of Douglasa-nd State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Vall Construction, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an improvement in wall construction, and has for its object to provide a wall consisting of an outer and inner jacket or secondary wall, said jackets or secondary walls being firmly connected and maintained parallel by use of a' plu.

as illustrated in the accompanying .drawing, wherein, 1

Fig. l is a view, partly in'section, of the wall in side elevation. 4 Fig. 2 `is a plan view of the same, partly in section. Fig. `3 is a view showing a part of a wall in transverse section. Fig. 4 is a side view of a receptacle, partly in section.

Referring now to the drawing, the wall 5 consists of a plurality of cylindrical receptacles 6 disposed in engagement, side by side, layers or jackets of cement 'or similar adhesive material, while in plastic condif tion, being applied to the receptacles to form.

inner and outer walls '7.

The receptacles preferably are constructed of sheet-metal, and ordinary tin cans may be employed to advantage; and it will be seen that when disposed one upon` the other, side by side, their flanges 8 `.vill be in engagement, and that areas 9 (Fig. l), ap-

proximately of triangular form will be provided between the flanges, and that similar,

Serial No. 511,775.

greater areas 10 (Figs. 2, 3,) will also be 5o formed between the adjacent sides of the receptacles.

The use of the invention is of advantage in constructing walls of ships, buildings, culverts, flumes, basement floors of buildings or other 'floors and various other structures, the operation being that, in forming the jackets or walls 7 the cement is so applied that it fills the areas 9 between the fianges 8 and forms all parts of Walls 7 outwardly of the ends of the receptacles,vand provides detents or locking elements 11 by filling parts of the triangular areas 10 between the receptacles, adjacent to andvinwardly of the .flanges 8,v and when hardened, the cement operates to bind the walls 7 to the end portions of the receptacles, the latter operating to rigidly connect said walls 7 and maintaining-'them parallel.

lt will be seen that the receptacles will be containers' of air having no circulation,

the air between the receptacles, in the areas 10 being all that may circulate, this being a desirable feature in maintaining uniformity in temperature. Also, sincethe receptacles are of cylindrical form and disposed with their flanges in engagement, stresses directed thereto will tage.

I claim as my inventiom- In wall construction, hollow cylindrical bodies provided transversely at their ends with flanges and disposed one upon another with their axes approximately parallel, the flanges of said bodies at each of their ends being disposed in engagement and 'in vertical alignment, and an adhesive element outwardly of the ends of said bodies and filling be resisted to advanthe interstices between and adjacent to the f inner sidesv of the flanges providing air spaces. between 'said hollow cylindrical bodies.`

In testimony whereof, I have affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
