Abstract:
A report of results of tests made as basis from which the Federal S ecification for Cast Stone was prepared. The 68 samp es were representative of all the usual methods of fabrication and included a wide variety of aggregate. The strengths, absorption properties, and resistance to freezing and thawing were determined. The compressive strengths varied from I558 to 21,720 the 48-hr absorption from 2.0 to 13.1 percent. Resistance to freezing and thawing varied from complete disintegration at 25 cycles to the first signs of disintegration at 1450 cycles.
