To the user of Portland cement the question of irregularity of setting time is so important and the reasons thereof still so far from assured settlement, that the author makes no apology for the presentation of some notes on the subject at this International Conference in the hope that discussion will throw further light on this important problem to the structuralengineer. In the course of the author's somewhat lengthy experience in the cement industry he has found that the factor in the use of cement least understood, and productive of the most difficulty, and sometimes disappointment to the structural engineer and general user, is the property which cement possesses- in combination with water-of consolidating itself into a permanent rock-like mass, enlocking in the process any materials with which it is in contact and which are not chemically repellent.

The Strength of Steel Angle Struts

The Strength of Steel Angle Struts

ALTHOUGH the angle is the section most commonly used as a strut, we have had some doubt in the past as to the actual strength of steel angle struts when connected in the manner commonly employed in roof-truss, trestle and other framework. In Bulletin No. 218, issued by the United States Bureau of Standards, results are given of an investigation into the subject made by Messrs. A. H. Stang and L. R. Strickenberg.

Concrete Machinery - Part III. A Standard Machine for all Products

Concrete Machinery - Part III. A Standard Machine for all Products

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.
