    Significance and Use

    This test method is designed to present in a standardized format information on the variability of strength of cement from a single source over a period of time. It can be applied to all hydraulic cements covered in Specifications C150, C595, and C1157.

    Note 1—It should be recognized that concrete strength variability is influenced by other factors in addition to cement strength variability.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is intended for use in instances in which the purchaser desires information on the strength uniformity of a hydraulic cement produced at a single source. It is intended that this test method normally be used for the predominant cement manufactured at a cement plant. Guidelines for sampling, testing, presentation of results, and evaluation are given.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
