Testing Apparatus for Cement and Concrete - I

With the gradual raising of concrete engineering into a definite branch of science, the need for accuracy in every detail and, therefore, for testing at each successive step, has brought about the introduction of quite a large number of appliances used in controlling operations. Such checking of operations is required not only in connection with the primary materials-cement, sand, the larger aggregates and water-but the secondary adjuncts, including reinforcements, waterproofing or other ingredients, and also the mixtures at various stages, as well as the completed work, whether this be in the form of mass construction or moulded units.
