ASTM WK57020

    New Specification for Shrinkage Mold to Measure Early Age Shrinkage

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: C09.68 | Committee C09 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Currently the shrinkage mold used to measure shrinkage as per the ASTM C157 test method is widely used, however, it does not allow for measuring of the shrinkage that happens in the first 24 hours (or in the case of ASTM C928, in the first 3 hours). The proposed device allows for measuring of shrinkage using specimen that is of the same size as currently used for ASTM C157 measurements.


    Early Age Shrinkage.


    Defined under proposed scope.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
