Abstract:During 1941 and 194Q four experimental installations of test piling were driven, three in sea water and one in fresh water, for studies of concrete performance. One sea water exposure was in the east mooring basin of Cape Cod Canal, so as to evaluate the effect of exposure in a cold climate. A fresh water exposure in similar climate was constructed at the confluence of Esopus Creek and the Hudson River at Saugerties, N. Y. two other seawater exposures were in the mild climates of Florida and southern California. Twenty-two of the Q7 Long-Time Study cements were used in three eastern exposures; seven were used in Californip. After more than 15 years, significant trends in performance are developing, not all of them along the anticipated lines of the investigation of cement performance but still of much more than casual interest to users of concrete in marine construction.
