High Aluminia Cement Concrete - Appraisal, the Problems, and Some Findings

The paper describes briefly the developments leading to the need for the appraisal of structures containing elements in high alumina cement concrete; it is based on the author’s experience as consulting engineer and as Convenor of the Institution’s Informal Study Group on High Alumina Cement Concrete. General information is provided on methods of appraisals used, tests, monitoring methods, and factors of safety. The need for further basic and independent research into the various uses of high alumina cement, past and future, is stressed. A.S. Safier
