Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 27-34
Abstract:butlines the details of a program of tests undertaken by the Bureau of Reclamation, on a scale never before attempted, to investigate the effects of size of aggregate, test specimen on mix proportions and size of cornpressive properties, and permeability strength, elastic of mass concrete. Some of the early test results and indications are presented.
