Having abdicated the British throne in December , and married Wallis Simpson in June , the Duke of Windsor announced in September the same year that he intended to travel privately to Germany and the United States to tour factories. Windsor's interests, officially into researching the social and economic conditions of the working classes , were also entwined with the looming threat of war in Europe, and it may be that he saw himself in the role of peacemaker between Britain and Germany. However, the British government refused to officially sanction such a position and was firmly against his proposed tour. The government suspected, correctly, that the Nazis would use the Duke's presence as a propaganda coup while revealing nothing to him that they did not wish him to see.

The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts. Author s : M. Tyler Ley, Nathan J. Harris, Kevin J. Folliard, and Kenneth C. Publication: Materials Journal. Abstract: The amount of air-entraining admixture AEA needed to achieve a target air content in fresh concrete can vary significantly with differences in the fly ash used in the concrete.
The work presented in this paper evaluates the ability to predict the AEA dosage on the basis of tests on the fly ash alone. Fly ash was sampled from six separate sources. For four of these sources, samples were obtained both before and after the introduction of "low-NOx burners. Nevertheless, the data suggest that modification of the burning process to meet environmental quality standards may affect the fly ash-AEA interaction. ACI Materials Journal. CI Magazine.
