Abstract:
Confirms that the strengths of capped concrete test cylinders cast in waxed paper molds are less than those made in metal molds with identical procedures. Shows that the major differences in strength is attributed to the higher density of the cylinders cast in metal molds. Suggests that a heavier reusable base plate might be used with waxed paper molds.
