To the EDITOR of The Structural Engineer.
SIR,--Professor Abrams has stated that with a given fineness modulus and water-cement ratio, the strengths of concrete produced from a widely varying range of aggregates will be the same.
Mr. Jackson added to the paper the following extract from the Kelvin Lecture of last year, delivered by Professor W. L. Bragg to the Institution of Electrical Engineers :-
As Portland cement plays such an important part as one of the raw materials which the
structural engineer employs in practically every type of building construction, a knowledge of the methods of its manufacture will not only be of interest to him, but necessary in order to appreciate the full use of this material in design.
