Abstract:In the report of this Committee for 1919, certain recommendations were made, relating to engineering practice for reinforced-concrete columns; where four-hour fire protection is required.

These results are to found in a report, entitled Fire Tests of Concrete Columns, that has been submitted to the Institute for presentation at the 1920 meeting, and which contains data which seem to justify the recommendation of one additional aggregate and of one additional expedient for the prevention of spalling.
