Abstract:In the report submitted to the Institute at Atlantic City in June, 1919, the committee mentioned a series of wear tests of mixtures commonly employed in floor construction to be carried out at the Structural Materials Research Laboratory, Lewis Institute, Chicago, the results of which would provide much useful data. An outline attached to the present report indicates the scope of this investigation and the various factors that are being studied as affecting resistance to wear. The tests are well under way, but it is not possible to report results at this meeting.
