Excerpt from Cements, Limes and Plasters: Their Materials, Manufacture and Properties
OF all the non-metallic structural materials in use by the engineer, the most important at the present day are those included under the head of Cementing Materials, using that term in its broadest sense to include not only the hydraulic cements proper, but the limes, plasters, and allied materials. This importance is due in large part to the advances which have been made, in American practice, in the methods of manufacturing these products, for these advances in technology have resulted in supplying the engineer with uniform and high-grade: cementing materials at prices low enough to permit of great increase in their uses.
