Abstract : The collection consists of four sections: (a) the 'Methods of Investigation of Physical and Mechanical Properties of Materials' section contains articles (reports and information from delegates at the mentioned conference) on problems concerning the theoretical basis of nondestructive methods of material testing; the articles also consider draft codes worked out by the Institute of Construction and Architecture of the Academy of Sciences of the Latvian SSR for determination of acoustic characteristics of materials and for the use of these characteristics for determination of concrete quality in samples, products and structures; the section also includes articles on problems of practical use of acoustic methods to determine the quality of concrete, and, on the basis of these investigations, new possibilities have been found for the use of acoustic methods in the testing of materials. (b) The 'Rheology' section includes articles on particular problems of the theory of a viscoelastic body. (c) The 'Reinforced Concrete' section contains theoretical investigations of plain reinforced concrete and prestressed reinforced concrete, taking into account the factor of time; the section also includes a description of the design of reinforced concrete frames for agricultural buildings, as proposed by the Institute. (d) The 'Concrete Technology' section reflects the work of the Institute in the field of development of methods to study the technological processes of concrete manufacture, as well as questions on the improvement of concrete technology.
