To the Editor of The Structural Engineer. Water-Cement Ratio. Sir,-In reference to Mr. C S Gray’s letter,Professor Duff A Abrams states that "Aggregates of equivalent concrete making qualities may be produced by an indefinite number of different gradings of a given material." "Aggregates of equivalent concrete qualities may be produced from materials of widely different size and grading." "In general, fine and coarse aggregates of widely different size or grading can be combined in such a manner as to produce similar results in concrete." The meaning seems to point clearly to the fact that size or grading may vary widely in each aggregate, but not the different aggregates unless they have equivalent concrete qualities. W D Williams
