Reinforced Concrete Roads. Better Concrete and Better Reinforcement

Increasing attention is being given, by engineers to this branch of civil engineering, principally in connection with the manufacture of the necessary steel reinforcement and in the selection, grading and mixture of the requisite concrete aggregates. That the latter question is of the utmost importance there can be no doubt; in fact, many of the successful reinforced concrete roads, for which the manufacturers of various fabrics are taking no little credit upon themselves, are in reality due to the quality of the concrete rather than to the amount and arrangement of any embedded mesh.
