|Title||Unpublished paper, 'Account of further experiments tried at Chatham, for the purpose of obtaining an artificial water cement' by C W [Charles William] Pasley|
|Date||1 March 1831|
|Description||This is a follow-up to Pasley's earlier paper on artificial water cement, found at AP/14/14. Pasley recounts experiments to create a water cement, and discusses practical applications of his water cement in construction, with tips on its use. He deduces that carbonate of lime, silica, and alumina are critical in forming artificial water cement. Corrections and deletions appear throughout in ink and graphite.|
