Title: The Necessity for Field Tests of Concrete
Author(s): Fritz Von Emperger
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 530-536
Abstract:One of the most essential precautions taken in every well regulated manufacturing plant is in the control of raw materials as to its qualities in order to properly guard against poor material. Failure to do this results in a reduction of the efficiency of the finished work, causing either accident or reconstruction, which sometimes has a far-reaching effect, especially in the case of construction work where it often leads to the financial ruin of the contractor even if there is no accident. It would seem natural that in concrete construction this precaution should not be omitted.
