Special Treatments for Portland Cement Concrete Discussion on Mr. C. L. a’Court’s Paper

Thanking the lecturer and opening the meeting for discussion the Chairman said they had had a most interesting lecture. Mr. a’Court had thrown out a wealth of ideas and the most intriguing one was that as concrete was such a readily used material we were stretching it to the limit to which it could be used. He wondered if that was so, for when they could produce a light weight concrete which was strong there was a whole range of other uses which had not yet come into being.
