A progress report of fire tests of concrete columns which are being conducted at the Pittsburgh laboratories of the Bureau of Standards was published in the Proceedings, of the American Concrete Instittute for 1918. The tests that have been made since that report was prepared extend the scope of the investigation by including additional aggregates and new applications of fire protective material. The tests reported in 1918 showed the behavior of columns of various types with coarse aggregates of Pittsburgh gravel and West Winfield, Pa. limestone. They also gave the results of two tests of columns which had had the protective concrete supplemented by the addition of other material, applied by plastering.
