Specifications for concrete together with design and control methods as practiced by the City of Milwaukee for pavemtn construction in the past 10 years are described. Compression strength tests of 3002 - 6 x 12-in. cylinders are summarized for the period of 1949-1953 and air content tests numbering 337 are reported beginning with 1951 when air tests were instituted as a control measure. The cement factor specification is preferred by Milwaukee because of the precise building basis offered.
