    Significance and Use

    This practice is useful for preparing coked specimens for subsequent testing where the shapes desired cannot be fitted into the coking box described in Test Methods C831.

    This practice can be very sensitive to heating rates in coking. Thus, strict adherence to the coking procedure is necessary.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the preparation of coking of carbon-bearing material for subsequent testing such as modulus of rupture, slag testing, thermal conductivity, and thermal expansion. Test Methods C831 is the specified method for testing residual carbon.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 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.
