Recent attempts at restoring the structural use of high-alumina cement are discussed within the framework of the history of the use of this type of cement and the subsequent failures. The author describes his experience in testing this material. The article then reports on recent problems with high-alumina cement use and its durability. While high-alumina cement is a valuable material for use in refractory concrete and other special purposes, its use for structural concrete is a risk that is avoidable.
