    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C01.23 | Committee C01 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Scope

    To develop an additional standard or to include a new section in ASTM C 114 for automated thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) to identify compounds of interest in cement composition.

    Advances in TGA equipment offers unique capabilities to identify gypsum plaster hydroxides carbonates and other hydrated in cement. Multi step loss on ignition data is available on NIST cement reference material.
