Some observations relating to the physical properties of cement pastes of very low porosity, which were produced by high pressure compaction, are reported. Results for compressive and indirect tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, density, porosity, and the quantity of nonevaporable water, in relationship to the water-cement ratio and the pressure applied, were obtained. Some pre- liminary results obtained with mortars are also reported. The results are compared with those reported byother authors.
