This paper, supplementary presents the later age resu ts l to paper No. 29-25, of tests at the University of California to determine the best type of cement for construction of Boulder Dam. It discusses effect of chemical composition and fineness of cement on water requirement for workability, heat of hydration, compressive strength, strength-heat ratio, volume change, and durability F resistance to weathering and to sulfate waters). or some of the properties, contribution factors for each major compound in cement are given.
