Standard Test Method for Length Change of Hardened Hydraulic-Cement Mortar and Concrete
|Publication Date:||1 October 2008|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This test method covers the determination of the length changes that are produced by causes other than externally applied forces and temperature changes in hardened hydrauliccement mortar and concrete specimens made in the laboratory and exposed to controlled conditions of temperature and moisture.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. An exception is with regard to sieve sizes and nominal size of aggregate, in which the SI values are the standard as stated in Specification E 11. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. 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 nonconformance with the standard.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
