Standard Test Method for Density of Hydraulic Cement
|Publication Date:||1 July 2014|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This test method covers the determination of the density of hydraulic cement. Its particular usefulness is in connection with the design and control of concrete mixtures.
The density of hydraulic cement is defined as the mass of a unit volume of the solids.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
Warning-Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.2
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.
