Abstract:
The effects of composition and fineness of the laboratory cements employed in cement investiga- tions for Boulder Dam on strength, volume changes and sulfate resistance of mortars, are reported for ages up to IO years. For both wet and dry storage conditions, factors for each of several ages are given which indicate the contribution of each of the four major compounds present in portland cement to tensile and compressive strengths and volume changes. - Part 2, Dec. 1947.
