Mix proportioning methods and procedures for securing fluid workable concrete without bleeding have been developed. Strength, absorption, specific weight, toughness, stiffness, and durability characteristics of structural Waylite concrete are presented. Damage due to freezing and thawing was predicted from the change in the dynamic modulus of elasticity with ex-cellent results. Reinforced concrete beams made with Waylite aggregate closely followed the behavior observed for sand-and-gravel concrete beams.
