|Issue:||"Engineering History and Heritage (Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers)", June 2009, n. 2 v. 162|
The paper is published in two parts. Part I presents a leadup to the Stone Committee. A brief description of high-alumina cement (HAC) is given and the problems with its use in structures are outlined. The body of the Stone Committee report is then dealt with and some more widely applicable conclusions of the report are discussed. Part II (Engineering History and Heritage, 2009) discusses the background to HAC problems in the light of the Stone Committee report as well as the present-day situation.
