Abstract:
In this paper "preparation" or the more common "making" of concrete will refer more particularly to the proper delievery of the materials to the mixer, rather than the proper proportioning and mixing of the same. The latter is now so nearly standardized, that its discussion would be uninteresting. "Handling" will cover the transporting and placing of the concrete. There will be illustrated and briefly described four or five methods.
