Abstract:
During the past five years remarkable progress in the making and placing of concrete has been made. The contractor of today realizes that a properly designed mix which will produce workable concrete is necessary. Furthermore, the up-to-date contractor is well aware that workable concrete is much more economical, as to cost of materials and expense of handling than the average concrete made without a calculated mix.
