It is claimed for the Standard Concrete Machine that it is designed to give unrestricted scope in the manufacture of concrete products. An idea of the range covered by this machine, some of the products of which we illustrate, may be gathered from the fact that the largest casting which can be produced has a length of 6 ft. and a width of 3 ft., and any thickness within the limit of the maximum weight of the product, which is two tons. Also a number of products can be made at one operation of the machine; for example, three or four lintols, four or more cills, two, three or four kerbs, and six or more channels. The product can be moulded on any or all of its four sides; and it can be made solid or hollow, ornamented or plain.

Aluminious Cement in Practice

Aluminious Cement in Practice

UNDER the designation “Bauxite, or Aluminous Cement" may be grouped cements manufactured by burning in nearly equal proportions lime and bauxite until fusion, or almost until fusion, as the case may be. Such cements prepared by fusion are at present manufactured on a commercial scale by three firms : The Société Anonyme des Chaux et Cyinaents de Lafarge et du Teil, the originators of this new type of cement, who started experimenting as far back as 1897, took their patent in 1908, and reached the commercial stage in 1914, produce Ciment fondu (Registered Trade Mark) at le Teil (Ardèche) by use of a water-jacket, and Ciment Electro-Fondu (Registered Trade Mark) by use of the electric oven at Moutiers (Savoie). Yearly output about 50,000 tons. Mons. T.J. Guéritte

International Cement Congress

International Cement Congress

THERE can be little doubt that the building material of all others that will enter into the reconstruction of our country is cement. This being undoubtedly true, it is of exceptioml interest to record that, availing themselves of the opportunity afforded by the Building Exhibition at Olympia, The lnstitution of Structural Engineers convened a Coagress of delegates from all parts of the world to read papers on and to discuss in all its aspects, the manufacture, chemical properties, possible refinement and improvements and constructive possibilities of cement. A conference duly met on April 22 and the delegates were received at the Building Exhibition, Olympia, by MAJOR JAMES PETRIE, President of the Institution of Structural Engineers, and were conducted round the exhibition. They were afterwards entertained at lunch by the Council of the Institution of Structural Engineers and the directors of the Building Exhibition. MAJOR PETRIE, who took the chair, in proposing the health of the delegates, said they included some very distinguished men from all parts of the world. He welcomed them warmly, and felt sure that they would find, in the many papers which had been contributed, material which was both interesting and instructive as illustrating the difficulties which confronted structural engineers in their ordinary everyday work.
