Plastic mortars of four different cements were prepared and subjected to boiling water and steam at atmosheric pressures for I6 hr within 1/2 hr after mold-deflections the results so obtained when compared with the results secured in testing the same mortars cured in a damp closet at 70 F show that the higher temperatures materially increase the strength at 24 hr, but at, 7 and 28 days there is little or no difference. The diferent cements do not react to the same degree at the higher temperatures.
