As a result of a desire on the part of the Federal departments for a specification for cast stone, the Bureau of Standards has undertaken at the request of the Federal Specifications Board, the accumulation of data on the physical properties of commercial cast stone upon which such a specification may be written. Existing published data upon the properties of cast stone being very meager, the manufacturers and builders with whom the Bureau has been in contact are also keenly interested in having these properties determined. This paper presents some of the data which have been accumulated to date during this study and is in the nature of a progress report of an investigation in which much more remains to be done.
