cement: Drying times of concrete

Description

Drying times of different concrete mixes used in a sidewalk. Mix ‘A’ is the conventional mix. Mixes ‘B’ and ‘C’ are experimental, and more expensive, mixes.

Format

A data frame with 19 observations on the following 2 variables.

type

concrete mix - a factor with levels A, B and C

time

time (hr) until concrete is dry enough to walk on
