Abstract:
Although the importance of testing is generally recognized by the large consumers of cement, especially those engaged in constructing public works, its value, even to the present time, is not always apparent to the consumer of smaller quantities. It must be remembered that cement is an artifical product made by mixing certain ingredients and then treating the mixture in a complex mechanical process, so that even if the greatest care is exercised as it is in the best plants, certain variations in quality must necessarily exist.
