Abstract:
The chart presented permits the direct expression of the three variables of a concrete mix. These variables., cement, aggregate, and water are ex- pressed in amounts per cubic yard of concrete, the expressions being given in those terms made familiar through long usage by the man in the field. The chart lends itself readily to the solution of the problems encountered in the adjustment of a mix.
