Pagination or Media Count:
Several materials are purported to be fast setting and capable of supporting loads in a relatively short time after casting. Some of the materials require only the addition of water prior to mixing, while some are admixtures or accelerators that are added in varying amounts to a specified cement at the time of mixing. Literature pertaining to fast setting materials are surveyed. Copies of all available pertinent information were arranged in eight annexes. The information was classified as follows calcium sulfates high alumina cements very fine cements silico-phosphate cements accelerators, organic accelerators, inorganic, miscellaneous and general. The content of each annex are summarized herein. A list of the literature examined is also included.
