CEN - EN 196-1

Methods of testing cement - Part 1: Determination of strength

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 April 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 38
ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar): 91.100.10
scope:

This part of EN 196 describes the method for the determination of the compressive and, optionally, the flexural strength of cement mortar. The method applies to common cements and to other cements and materials, the standards for which call up this method. It may not apply to other cement types that have, for example, a very short initial setting time.

The method is used for assessing whether the compressive strength of cement is in conformity with its specification and for validation testing of a CEN Standard sand, EN 196-1, or alternative compaction equipment.

This part of EN 196 describes the reference equipment and procedure and allows alternative compaction equipment and procedures to be used provided that they have been validated in accordance with the appropriate provisions in this document. In the event of a dispute, only the reference equipment and procedure are used.
