Abstract:
Author proposes use of mortar voids characteristics of individual sands rather than averages of character- tics of a group of sands to design concrete mixtures of a desired stren are outlined and i lustrated I th. Details of procedure of design and examples of results of application of method for concrete for pavements de-scribed. The basic soundness of the mortar void method is confirmed and advantages of refinements in its application stressed.
