THE EFFECT OF MINERAL OILS ON THE STRENGTH OF CEMENT MORTAR

HAVING REGARDED THE INCREASED USE OF OIL, ESPECIALLY LUBRICATING, WASHING, AND FUEL OILS, THE ASSESSMENT OF THE STRENGTH OF OIL-SATURATED CEMENT MORTAR OF CONCRETE DESERVES MORE ATTENTION. MORTAR PRISMS OF VARYING COMPOSITIONS WERE ALL SUBJECTED TO THE SAME CONDITIONS OF PRELIMINARY STORAGE, AND THEN THE EFFECT OF HEAVY OIL, DIESEL OIL AND PETROL ON THE STRENGTHS THEREOF FOR PERIODS OF EXPOSURE (IMMERSION) OF UP TO A YEAR WAS DETERMINED. THE REDUCTION IN STRENGTH OF OIL-SATURATED CONCRETE IS REGAINED TO AN EXTENT CORRESPONDING TO HOW SUCCESSFULLY THE OIL CAN BE EXPELLED FROM THE CONCRETE. FOR PRACTICAL PURPOSES IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT OIL-SATURATED CONCRETE BE TREATED BY DRYING. HENCE THE EFFECT OF DRYING UPON THE STRENGTH WAS LIKEWISE STUDIED ON PRISMS WHICH HAD BEEN STORED IN PETROL AND IN DIESEL OIL FOR A YEAR. THE EXECUTION OF THESE TESTS, AND THE RESULTS OBTAINED, ARE REPORTED IN DETAIL. /AUTHOR/
