The bases ofr a calculation of the compounds present in Portland cement from chemical analyses are presented. Arithmetical and diagrammatical methods are given for such a calculation. The compounds considered are 4CaO.Al2O3.Fe2O3, 3CaO.Al2O3, 2CaO.SiO2, 3CaO.SiO2, uncombined MgO, uncombined CaO, and CaSO4. Other components thatn those included in these compounds are not at present considered as their forms of combination are not known.
