ASTM WK40631

    Work Item: ASTM WK40631 - Revision of C1702 - 09a Standard Test Method for Measurement of Heat of Hydration of Hydraulic Cementitious Materials Using Isothermal Conduction Calorimetry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1702 - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: C01.26 | Committee C01 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The recent Round Robin tests indicated that many users experience some level of calibration error when using the instrument manufacturers calibration method, that may not be suitable for this test method. The subcommittee therefore feels that a generic calibration method using a Portland cement with known heat of hydration should be offered in a non-mandatory appendix.
