“Time as a Factor in Making Concrete” has received much attention from the concrete industry in recent years, the American Concrete Institute devoting two entire sessions to a symposium on this subject at the 1927 Convention. The discussions at this meeting, the increasing use of central mixing plants, and the transportation of mixed concrete for long distances or for long periods before placing emphasize the need for information concerning the effect of retempering and delayed placing on the strength and workability of concrete.
