THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE - ITS RELATION TO THE CEMENT, AGGREGATES AND WATER

METHODS ARE DEVELOPED FOR STUDYING THE CONCRETE-MAKING PROPERTIES OF THE FINE COARSE AGGREGATES AND FOR THE COMPARISON AND ACCEPTANCE OF AGGREGATES. MEANS ARE OUTLINED FOR DESIGNING CONCRETE MIXTURES FOR DIFFERENT DENSITIES AND STRENGTHS WHEN THE VOIDS IN MORTARS MADE UP WITH A GIVEN CEMENT AND FINE AGGREGATE HAVE BEEN DETERMINED BY LABORATORY TESTS. TEST DATA COVER A CONSIDERABLE RANGE-A VARIETY OF AGGREGATES, DIFFERENT PROPORTIONS OF CEMENT, AND DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF MIXING WATER. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF RESULTS IS DISCUSSED. THE APPLICATION OF THE METHODS AND PRINCIPLES DEDUCED TO DESIGN, SPECIFICATIONS, AND FIELD USE IS CONSIDERED. /AUTHOR/
