THE Committee of the Institution of Civil Engineers appointed to investigate the deterioration of structures exposed to the action of sea water reported inter alia in 1920, that "it is taken by most engineers as definitely determined that properly constituted Portland cement concrete, employed as it should be, may be relied upon to produce sound and permanent work." F.E. Wentworth-Sheilds

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

The Viscosity of the Raw Material Slurry Used in the Manufacture of Portland Cement

ALTHOUGH this Conference is to deal chiefly with the properties and uses of cements we think that engineers and users of cement generally will be interested to receive some account of methods investigated by British Portland Cement Manufacturers, with the object of reducing the cost of manufacture, and so-of the utmost importance to the user-of reducing the cost of the finished cement.
