Abstract:
A study of some of the factors affecting permeability of concrete as determined by the measurement ofthe water actually passing through as distinct from that entering a given specimen in a given time. Many variables studied included different cements, water-cement ratios, curing periods, ages, and effect of admixtures. The tests show that the method of placing, the moist curing period and water-cement ratio areprincipal factors affecting waterting hotness. The apparatus used is Illustrated.
