Field and laboratory experiments designed to show the merits of air-entrainment in cement concrete have been conducted by the Department of Highways since 1940. During that time six laboratory projects with many variables have been completed, and most of these were directly related to the four experimental roads which have been in service from four to six years. Collectively these experiments form a moderately comprehensive analysis of the features of air-entrainment, still there are many points which have not been fully covered either because of limitations in time and personnel or because of new developments which render some of the 1940 experiments obsolete in detail.
