44 b. Finish.

Bridge at Aconomowoc, Wis. Mortar face, 1 cem : 1 granite screenings
: 1 torpedo sand. On the second day after completion, molds removed and
surf rubbed with a soft stone and water.

Inman arch, Hohenzollern. 1 cem : 5 broken limestone. After setting
12 hrs, the loose cem was removed by water and brushes.

Pacific Borax Go's factory, Bayonne, N. J. Finished to represent coursed
ashlar, by inserting wooden strips in the molds and dressing the faces with
a pneumatic hammer. One man could dress from 300 to 600 sq ft in 10
hours by machine, 100 to 200 by hand. Good effect.

"Mr. Cummings produced a good finish by going over the surf with a
wire brush while the cem was still green."

Utica & Mohawk Valley Ry viaduct, Herkimer, N. Y., and viaduct over
rys at Jacksonville, Fla. "A very superior finish." For a hard wall, wet
the surface and apply a thin 1 : 2 mortar with a brush. Rub surface with
a piece of grindstone or carborundum, removing board marks, filling pores
and producing a lather on the surf. Go over this lather, before it dries,
with a brush dipped in water.

For a green wall (molds removed in less than 7 days,) use a thin grout of
neat cem, instead of the 1 : 2 mortar. Remainder of process as above.

Use smooth molds, deposit wet cone directly against them. After re-
moving molds, float the surf with a wooden float, using only sufficient
mortar to fill the pores and give a smooth finish.

con, E R, Vol 38, p 273.

Steel rods, sheet steel and expanded metal, embedded in cone blocks
3" X 3" X 8", and unprotected steel, all enclosed in tin boxes, and exposed,
for 3 wks, one portion to steam, air and carbon dioxide, one to air and
steam, one to air and carbon dioxide, and one to atmosphere of testing room

Conclusions :

Cone must be dense, and be mixt wet. Neat cement a perfect protection.

With cinder cone, corrosion due mainly to iron oxide, not to sulfur.

Cinder cone, if dense and well rammed, about as good as stone cone.
- Steel must be clear when imbedded.

Steel must be coated with cem before being imbedded. Otherwise there
will be more rust than steel in the result. Prof. Chas. L. Norton, Rep No.

Adhesion perfect. Metal absolutely free from rust.

Berlin. Reinfd cone retaining wall. After 11 yrs use, metal found free
from corrosion, "except in some cases where the rods were within 0.3 or
0.4" from the surf." Effect of the cone, in preserving metal, not due to the
exclusion of air. "Even thq the cone be porous and not in contact with
the metal at all points, it will still filter out and neutralize the carbonic
acid and prevent corrosion." S. B. Newberry, E N, Vol 47, '02, Apr 24, p 335.

water appeared in cracks running across the beams, especially with
the richest mixtures and with temp at 212 F.

on a Working Scale," U. S. Water-Supply and Irrigation Paper 143, '05.

47 a. Permeability. To determine availability of such pipes under
pres, for U. S. Reclamation Service.

Specimens. Seven reinforced hand-mixed cone pipes, 5 ft diam, 6*
thick, 20 ft long; each made in one section; one, same dimensions, in 4
sees. Skilled workmen. In 3 of the 7 pipes, and in 3 of the 4 sees of the
8th pipe, lime was used in the mixture.

The pipes varied greatly in texture. One of them "seemed to be of a
crumbly nature, and it would have been easy to cut a hole through it."
Another was "exceedingly hard."

Treatment. The pipes were tested with and without inside linings of
cem and sand, etc, with and without lime paste. The Sylvester soap-and-
alum wash (p 928), P and B waterproof paint, and other paints were tried;
and clay was stirred up in the water within the pipes. Pressures up to
70 Ibs/Q" = 161.5 ft. head.


47 b. In spite of all precautions, the pipes leaked, especially along tamping
seams. Leakage decreased greatly under pres, as percolating
water filled the pores with laitance; but in the mean time the leakage may
be sufficient to damage foundations of pipe.

47 c. Dry mixtures gave the more permeable cone.

47 d. With carefully graded gravels, it was found difficult to secure
uniform distribution of the din sizes.

47 e. Keep cone shaded while mixing and placing.

47 f. Interruptions to work are least dangerous with wet mixtures.
In tamping, avoid displacement of reinforcement.

47 g. Make reinforcemt strong enough to protect cone against ten-

47 h. Soap and alum mixture of advantage in making cone; but
%" plaster found advisable on inside, in two coats, the first with lime paste,
to retard setting; the second (applied when the first is dry) to be troweled
smooth. When dry, apply thick neat cem wash.

47 i. Reinfd cone pipes not recommended for heads over 70 ft (30 Ibs
/Q"). For short dists, special precautions may justify 100 ft (43 Ibs/D").

47 k. Cone pipes liable to crack, especially along tamping seams;
but, even if cracked, probably drier and more durable than other kinds.

47 1. When the pipes were broken up, rust appeared upon only 1 rod,
which was rusted all around for a length of about 1 W , where a large and
long-continued leak had occurred. The pipe had been lined with a mortar
containing sal ammoniac (ammonium chloride) and iron filings.

49. R. Feret, "A Treatise on Concrete, Plain and Reinforced," by
Taylor and-Thompson, '05.

49 a. The injurious action of sea water is due chiefly to the sulfuric
acid of the dissolved sulfates; hence, the cem should contain as little
gypsum (lime sulfate) as possible. Port cem should be low in aluminum
and in lime. The presence of puzzolanic material is advantageous. The
cone should be dense and impervious.

52 a. Impure sands.

1 : 3 Port cem mortars, made with

(a) sand of smooth rounded quartz grains, mixt with larger fragments
of limestone shells, 92 % past No 24 sieve, 28 % past No 50;

(b) "St Paul standd sand," 54 % past No 24; 11 % past No 50;

(c) "Ottawa standd sand."

Results :

Relative tensile strgths (a) 100; (b) 137; (c) 107.5.

Sand (a) made excellent cone in a draw-span center pier.

1 : 3 Port cem mortars, with sand containing 3.2 to 15 % clay; strgths
< with clean sand. With nat cem 1 : 3, and Port 1 : 2, the results were
generally favorable to the cleaner sand.

Sand with 6 % clay gave stronger mortars before than after washing.

Sands, to which 2 to 20 % rich loam had been artificially added, gave
mortar testing somewhat irregularly but in general higher than those with
clean sand.

52 b. Fine sand, with clay. A sand, all passing No. 100 sieve,
93.2 % passing No. 200 (therefore finer than most cem. See Specfs), and
containing 12 % clay, gave a 1 : 3 Port cem mortar showing, at 6 moa
and 1 yr, nearly the same tensile strgth as similar mortar made with "Ot-
tawa standard sand," but the mortar was weaker at shorter periods.

Oil. Tests by Oeo. J. Oriesenaner.

53 a. A neat Port cem briquet, 2 yrs old, exposed to occasional
drippings of signal oil, began to disintegrate in 10 mos; but no recent cone
structures were found perceptibly injured by oil. A cone floor, upon
which lubricating and lighting oils had been stored for 6 yrs, was apparently
unaffected. Oil penetrated about Vic". A piece of this floor, in oil 10
mos, still sound.

53 b. Port cem; neat; 1:3 sand; 1:3 limestone screengs; 18 bri-
quets each; 4 days in air. Then saturated daily with signal oil; later
less frequently. Cracks appeared in the 1 :3 specimens in 2> mos; in
neat specimens in 5 mos. All the briquets disintegrated eventually.

53 c. Port cem ; 54 briquets, neat; 36 briquets 1 : 3 sand. 7 d in
air. Then saturated daily with oil; later, less frequently. Oils used;
extract lard, whale, castor, boiled linseed, crude petroleum, signal. Cema
made from limestone and clay, marl and clay, limest and slag. Lard oil
disintegrated most of the briquets in from 2 wks to 2^ mos, but some re-
mained sound for 9 mos. Signal oil (animal and mineral mixt) had nearly
the same effect. Whale and castor oil affected only a few briquets; while
petroleum and boiled linseed disintegrated no briquets. Petroleum di-
minished strgth somewhat. Boiled linseed formed a protective coating
and did not affect strgth. As a rule, the neat briquets yielded first. In
general, briquets of limestone and slag yielded most; those of limestone
and clay least.

53d. Silica cem; neat, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, sand. 1 briquet each.
2 yrs in water; 20 days in warm air. Signal oil 2 yrs. First 3 briquets
sound; 1 briquet (1:3) disintegrating.

53 e. Linseed oil, Sylvester's process (p 928), paraffine, and water glass
(soda silicate) were applied, as coatings, to the briquets, but all failed
to protect them against the action of the oils.

53 f. Rich cone, well made of good materials and well set and sea-
soned, is best for resisting oil. In practice, cone structures are rarely,
if ever, saturated with oil, as were these specimens.

For a given consistency, the percentage of water depends upon the

coarse sand requires.
