The Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario decided, some years ago, to systematically study the behavior of their many concrete structures, with a view to learning not only their existing condition, but their probable condition in years to come. The examinations were extended to include other concrete structures in different parts of Canada and the United States, until the number of inspections now made have reached a total of several hundred. This paper is an attempt to sat down briefly some of the conclusions that have been reached as a result of these examinations.
