"Although we find a great many results of experimental work in cement testing, and some curves plotted, there seems to have been very little attempt made toward fitting equations to these curves. This then leaves an opening for original investigation. During my experiments quite a variety of interesting points have been made manifest. Most of them are of no practical benefit, but merely of interest in themselves. My work has been on a few of the most important ones, which will be given subsequently" – p. 1.
