Abstract:
The disintegration of concrete when exposed to the concetrated salts in irrigated districts of the western part of the United States has been a subject of discussion by engineers and user of cement for the past ten or fifteen years. There are many concrete stuctures in these districts which do not appear to be affected by the salts but there are some which were apparently made of good materials and were well fabricated which show indications of being attacked.
