Title: Control of Concrete Mixtures on University of Pittsburgh Stadium
Author(s): W.S. Hindman
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 110-118
Abstract:Much has been said ant1 written in the last few years on the design and control of concrete mixtures and any engineer or contractor, who is interested, can apply himself with good information on this subject by securing, with little effort, the written reports of valuable research and experiences of others. I think we can assume that we are now able to determine, with a reasonable degree of accuracy, the proportioning of available concrete aggregates in such a way as to produce concrete of the desired strength for the work in hand, but the application in the field is not so simple and the difficulties encountered there have tended to retard the general use of this knowledge.
