Abstract:
There are many articles, committee reports, and manuals on proportioning, mixing, placing, inspection, and all phases of concrete making, each pointing out the highest quality techniques. A code, on the other hand, must set forth the minimum acceptable results or methods of obtaining them. It must also be remembered that this Code applies to all sizes of buildings from the cottage to the skyscraper. This article includes: Concrete quality; Methods of determining the proportions of concrete; Strength tests of concrete; Splitting tensile tests of concrete.
