The purpose of these tests was to study the effect of various gradings of aggregate having the same fineness moduli on the strength and absorption of tamped concrete building tile. The tests were made under the auspices of Committee P-1, American Concrete Institute. Acknowledgment is made to Prof. R. L. Morrison who tested the tile and the cement at the Michigan State Highway Laboratory, Ann Arbor, and to E. W. Dienhart, who furnished materials and the plant of Acme Concrete Products and Gravel Co., Cement City, Mich., where the specimens were made by C.L. Bourne, representing the committee.
