Experiences in the Physical and Chemical Examination of Concrete

In these days the synthetic side of concrete technology receives a tremendous amount of attention, dealing as it does with the state of the materials and the methods whereby certain results can be obtained. It is, however, with the converse of these methods I wish more particularly to deal in this paper, i.e., the analytical treatment, when the start is made with the result in the form of a piece of concrete. Physical and chemical tests are then applied with the object of reconstructing in detail its formation and history, from the time when it was in separate constituents, through the period of mixing, the curing period immediately following its set, and thence t0 the time of examination.
