NEW METHODS FOR THE STUDY AND CONTEMPORARY ASPECTS OF THE HISTORY OF CEMENTING MATERIALS

A study was undertaken of the history of cementing materials in which the historical-literary and archival investigation was combined with experimental study of many samples of cements, mortars and concretes from different buildings from different periods and nations and also with the historicoetymological study of special terms. Plasters used in Greco-Roman-Byzantine times and mortars of the middle ages were studied and their standards were compared with those of today. Comments are made on cements and construction in the Russian empire. Questions regarding the theory of hardening and corrosion of modern cements, mortars and concretes and problems relating to the strength and durability of modern buildings are considered.
