OBSERVATIONS OF SIDEWALK CONCRETE DURING FIFTEEN YEARS EXPOSURE

THE FIELD RESEARCH INITIATED IN 1950 BY THE CANADA CEMENT COMPANY TO EVALUATE THE MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES USED IN THE CITY OF MONTREAL IN THE PLACING OF CONCRETE SIDEWALKS IS REVIEWED. EXTENSIVE TESTING OF THE CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND PERFORMANCE OF THE SIDEWALKS IS INDICATED. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATE THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF ENTRAINED AIR, PROPER MIX DESIGN AND COMPLETION OF THE WORKS BEFORE THE LATE FALL. THE CONCLUSIONS ALSO INDICATE THE LACK OF CORRELATION WITH SLUMP TEST RESULTS AND SULPHATE SOUNDNESS TESTING OF THE AGGREGATE. /CGRA/
