Announcing—The Building Science Series

The "Building Science Series" disseminates technical information developed at the Bureau on building materials, components, systems, and whole structures. The series presents research results, test methods, and performance criteria related to the structural and environmental functions and the durability and safety characteristics of building elements and systems.

These publications, similar in style and content to the NBS Building Materials and Structure Reports (1938-59), are directed toward the manufacturing, design, and construction segments of the building industry, standards organizations, officials responsible for building codes, and scientists and engineers concerned with the properties of building materials.

The material for this series originates principally in the Building Research Division of the NBS Institute for Applied Technology. Published or in preparation are:

BSS1. Building Research at the National Bureau of Standards. (In preparation.) BSS2. Interrelations Between Cement and Concrete Properties: Part 1, Materials

and Techniques, Water Requirements and Trace Elements. 35 cents BSS3. Doors as Barriers to Fire and Smoke. 15 cents BSS4. Weather Resistance of Porcelain Enamels: Effect of Exposure Site and other

Variables After Seven Years. 20 cents BSS5. Interrelations Between Cement and Concrete Properties: Part 2, Sulfate

Expansion, Heat of Hydration, and Autoclave Expansion. 35 cents BSS6. Some Properties of the Calcium Aluminoferrite Hydrates, 20 cents BSS7. Organic Coatings. Properties, Selection, and Use. $2.50 BSS8. Interrelations Between Cement and Concrete Properties: Part 3, Compressive

Strengths of Portland Cement Test Mortars and Steam-Cured Mortars.

55 cents BSS9. Thermal-Shock Resistance for Built-Up Membranes. 20 cents BSS10. Field Burnout Tests of Apartment Dwelling Units. 25 cents BSS11. Fire Resistance of Steel Deck Floor Assemblies. 25 cents BSS12. Performance of Square-Edged Orifices and Orifice-Target Combinations as

Bearing Wall. 15 cents BSS15. Interrelations Between Cement and Concrete Properties: Part 4, Shrinkage of

Hardened Portland Cement Pastes. (In press.) BSS16. Techniques for the Survey and Evaluation of Live Floor Loads and Fire Loads

in Modern Office Buildings. (40 cents) BSS17. Causes of Variation in Chemical Analyses and Physical Tests of Portland

Cement. (In press.)
