Title: Cement as a Factor in the Workability of Conrete
Author(s): P.H. Bates and J.R. Dwyer
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 43-55
Abstract:In this paper will be discussed some of the data which have been obtained a t the Bureau of Standards in its study of the workability of cement pastes. So far the studies have not been extended to concrete mixtures. However, if it can be demonstrated that there are differences in the workability of pastes, then it would follow that these different workabilities must also affect this property of concrete. Since i t has not been demonstrated to any degree of satisfaction that pastes made from different cements do have different degrees of workability it was thought desirable to attempt to measure this property quantitatively and then a t a later time to demonstrate the effect of the pastes made from different cement on the same dry mixture of aggregates.
