A practical and scientific treatise on calcareous mortars and cements, artificial and natural by L.-J Vicat( Book )

27 editions published between 1837 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having devised an artificial cement in 1817, Louis-Joseph Vicat (1786-1861) sought to share and further the science surrounding calcareous cements. His son, Joseph Vicat, went on to found the eponymous company which became an international manufacturer of cement. This work was first published in French in 1828 and is reissued here in the English translation of 1837. Vicat addresses the subject of limes, the ingredients used to prepare mortars and cements, and how these building materials are affected by environmental conditions, such as immersion in water or exposure to damp soil and inclement weather. He also compares binding products of the time with those developed by the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks. The translator, J. T. Smith, provides helpful explanatory notes and clarifies technical terms. Charles William Pasley's Observations on Limes, Calcareous Cements, Mortars, Stuccos, and Concrete (1838) is also reissued in this series

Mortars and Cements Facsimile by L.-J Vicat( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L.J. Vicat's investigations into the nature and use of limes first appeared in this English language edition in 1837 translated by Captain J.T. Smith, with the inclusion of extensive notes on developments in England at that time. Vicat's work is of immense interest and importance as it critically reviews the practices of time, sifting the good ones from the bad by careful experiment. In addition he was able to take developments in lime a stage further, describing very simple procedures which would make it possible to assess the nature of lime from any deposit encountered.
