Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Variability of Cement from a Single Source Based on Strength
|Publication Date:||1 January 2018|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This test method covers a procedure for determining the variability of a hydraulic cement produced at a single source using strength tests as the characteristic property. It is intended that this test method normally be used for the predominant cement manufactured at a cement plant. Guidelines for sampling, testing, presentation of results, and evaluation are given.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as the standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. One system of units is used in the Figure and Tables in this standard to illustrate the calculation methods that are applicable independent of the system of units.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
