Abstract:
This third paper concludes the report on the investigation of high-pressure steam curing of concrete products (ACI Journal, Nov.-Dec. 1934, and Sept.-Oct. 1935). Two series of tests, one on solid slabs of plain concrete such as might be used in the manufacture of cast stone, and another series on the bond resistance of steel bars embedded in steam-cured and moist-cured concrete concluded the investigation. Presents the results of both of these later series of tests and includes the results of recent tests of blocks tested at I year which formed the companion specimens of blocks and tested 7 days after steaming which were reported in earlier reports.
