Duff A. Abrams (1880-1965) was an early pioneer in the research of concrete. His research led to a number of test methods still in use today, and to a greater understanding of the relations between concrete mix design and the properties of hardened concrete. Abrams was involved with the laboratory of the Portland Cement Association for much of his career, and was the president of the American Concrete Institute in 1930-1931.
