Abstract

"Before entering into the especial subject for which this paper is intended, it is, perhaps, best to give a few prefatory remarks, as to what Concrete really is, the method and manner of its formation and it application in foundations and engineering structures.

Concrete may be defined as a species of artificial stone.

Its ingredients may be classified into two parts, viz:

First, the matrix which is either lime or cement, or a mixture of both.

Second, the aggregate consisting of small broken stone gravel, broken bricks, shells, etc"--A Concrete Culver, page 1.
