Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to summarize recent durability investigations of Iowa limestones and dolomites by the Iowa State Highway Commission, and to relate these investigations to the more general subject of the durability of Portland cement concrete. A subject as broad as the title indicates can be presented only very briefly at this time. The evidence discussed is for the most part from the Highway Commission records, supplemented by information from other sources including the Iowa Geological Survey publications and files. Acknowledgement is made to Bert Myers, Engineer of Materials and Tests, and to other employees of the Highway Commission who have assisted with information and suggestions, and to the Iowa Geological Survey for permission to use unpublished material in their files.
