Title: Long-Time Study of Cement Performance in Concrete
Author(s): F.R.McMillan and I.L. Tyler
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 441-454
Abstract:A comprehensive investigation of portland cement in concrete, in which the behavior of cements will be studied over a period of years, is introduced by this brief paper outlining: (1) history of the study-advisory committee membership, development of the program, financing and scope of the investigation; (2) selection of cements; (3) tests of cements; (4) construction projects-test roads, exposure to sea water and sulfate soils, concrete in thin sections, experimental farms and inspection of field projects. The paper is the first of a series of as yet an undetermined number reporting the results of the long time study. Chapter 2, "Manufacture of the Cements"; Chapter 3, "Chemical and Physical Tests" and Chapter 4, "Microscopical Studies" have been or are nearly completed and will probabaly be published during this JOURNAL volume year. Additional chapters will be forthcoming in the next few years as results of the study dictate.
