Abstract:
Architectural concrete differs from ordinary structural-analysis concrete in that it must be sightly, whereas structural concrete is primarily utilitarian. Its exposure to the elements makes necessary a degree of durability not required in protected structures. Specifications and methods considered satisfactory for structural concrete should be studied carefully and modified where ne-CHAS. cessary to insure sightliness and durability. Paper con-Presentation siders important factors: grading of aggregates, water-on cement ratio and workability of the mix, methods of handling and placing and adequate curing. Recogni-hydraulic tion by architect and contractor alike of the new problems involved is essential to a successful architectural concrete structure.
