Some Disturbing Factors in Cement Setting

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.
