The Vicat Test for Normal Consistency was devised in France approximately 150 years ago and has been in use as a standard ASTM method of test for hydraulic cements since 1904. Much has been learned about the relationship between normal consistency and various other properties of these materials from the numerous studies of related questions that have been carried out over the years. A summation of the information that has been developed concerning time of setting, autoclave soundness and tensile strength tests, and other subjects of potential interest to those engaged in the development of specifications and methods of test for cements, is presented in this review.
