From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the Tremie Concrete method, concrete is placed below water level through a pipe, the lower end of which is kept immersed in fresh concrete so that the rising concrete from the bottom displaces the water without washing out the cement content.

The tremie concrete method is often used in bridges that span bodies of water. In this case, the pier footing is supported by a tremie. Tremie pipes are also used to pour the concrete in slurry walls.

Tremie can also be used as a noun to refer to the hopper and drop pipe used to place the concrete underwater.
