SIR,-The following methods are put forward as the result of considerable experience in
dealing with aggregates for concrete and in the hope that they may be useful to others also.
The PRESIDENT OF THE INSTITUTION (Lieut.Colonel C.H. Fox, O.B.E., BSc., F.S.I.), extended a hearty welcome to Mr. W.T. Halcrow (Vice-President of the British Section of the Societe) and his fellow members, and added that the Institution would have liked to have welcomed also Sir George Humphreys (President of the British Section of the Societe), but unfortunately had not that opportunity owing to his absence abroad.
In May, 1934, I described before this Institution an extensive series of experiments made at the Building Research Station in order to establish a form of strength test, on
mortar which could be regarded as providing a satisfactory index to the strength of concrete.
