A presentation of results of an investigation of the strength and durability of concrete containing I8 different cements, 13 standard portland cements and 5 high-early-strength cements. The strength as well as the durability of the concrete containing different cements varied considerably. The durability was generally found to be independent of the strength. Both strength and durability of the concrete seemed to be independent of the chemical composition of the cements tested, indicating that the method of manufacturing the cement may have been the most important cause of the variation in the quality.
