THE following remarks apply to the use of Portland Cement only, and are based on the author's own experience :- The time seems to be past when engineers seriously objected to the use of reinforced concrete in sea-water, although its application has not always been successful, but when this has been the case, serious faults in design or execution account for such results.

Concrete Block Building

THIS subject is of particular importance in these times of shortage of bricks and skilled labour, since concrete block building provides a simple means of obtaining a really satisfactory substitute for the older methods, and offers a solution to the present difficulties. Major W.H. Smith

Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

Aluminious Cement ("Ciment Fondu") Pure or Mixed (Sand Cement)

SINCE the year 1920 the Compagnie de la Fonte électrique, at Bex, has been manufacturing an aluminous cement, which it has placed on the market under the name of Electro-Cement. This article, produced in accordance with the formulae of the French chemist Bied, has been subjected in Switzerland to various interesting uses, advantage being taken of its rapid and high mechanical resistance, with two or three days’ hardening, and its chemical unalterability in the presence of selenitic waters.

Influence of the Quantity of Mixing Water on the Heating During the Hardening of Aluminious Cements

IN 1921, on the occasion of crushing tests being carried out with hooped columns made in concrete composed of aluminous cement mmufactured at Bex (Electro-cement), Professor A. Paris, Engineer, drew our attention to the considerable heating disclosed on lifting out of the mould. J. Bertet
