Replies to questions of Ely Jacques Kahn and Leopold Arnaud regarding alleged spalling, cracking, absorption, and impermanency of exposed concrete. Suggests remedies by closer attention to new develop-ments and techniques, viz., treated concrete, reinforcing steels, thin slabs, and details, and stresses need for cooperation between architects, engineers and contractors. Discusses behavior of structures In-duced by foundation restraints (illustrated with small scale models), colored aggregates with. use of bond transfer method, discoloration, and erosion.
