The Chemical Effects of Aggressive Substances on Concrete. Discussion on the Paper by P. E. Halstead, B.Sc., Ph.D., F.R.I.C

Dr. HALSTEAD, introducing his paper said it was intended primarily to help structural engineers in the design stage of a structure, and it was not just something which would help to discover what had gone wrong with a structure; the latter was more the function of the chemist or physicist. That explanation would avoid unpleasant inquests on the kinds of failure he would illustrate, which might lead to the thought that it was better not to use concrete at all!
