Curren Cur rentt edi editio tion n app approv roved ed Jun Junee 15, Pub Publis lished hed Jul July y Ori Origin ginall ally y approved in Last previous edition approved in as C—01a DOI: Changes in height are measured and expressed as a positive or negative change in the height of a test specimen that is restrained from lateral movement.

However, the specimen used in this test method is not completely unrestrained so that the measurements are primarily useful for comparative purposes rather than as absolute values. In this system, the relay lens is located nearer the test specimen and has a focal length of Three sizes of molds are used in this test method with heights of , , mm [4, 6, 12 in. The mm rod shall be used with paste, grout, and mortar. The mm rod shall be used with concrete.

Protect the test specimen from heat from the light source and limit air movement Note 1. Test Specimen 6. Plastics Corp. For cementitious mixtures containing aggregate that will not all pass through a 4. For concrete mixtures having particles retained on the Fresh materials shall be used to make each trial. For premixed mortars or grouts, use the amount of water suggested by the manufacturer for the intended application. The consistency should be determined and the values recorded for all tests.

Calibration 7. Locate the test equipment and specimens on a surface substantially free of vibration during the test. If desired, use a single projected light source for both test specimens with duplicate magnifying lens systems and indicating charts. Darken the room, illuminate the projected light source, and place the dummy test specimens preferably hardened test specimens in the light beam before each of the magnifying lens systems. Then reposition the indicating chart so that the indicating ball image falls on the zero line.

Molding Specimens 9. Fabricate mm [in. Procedure 8. Preparation of Mixtures Remove pieces of large aggregate directly under the indicator balls, and repeat the procedure. Then tap the outer side of the molds lightly three times so that the indicator balls can adjust to their own natural displacement level in the mixture.

Position each specimen between the projected light source and the magnifying lens system. Adjust the position of the test specimens horizontally until the images of the indicator balls on the indicating charts are sharp and clear.

Reposition the indicating charts so that the indicating ball images fall on the zero lines. Record this time as the start of the test. Record ambient air temperature and humidity.

During the test, carefully place additional drops of oil on the test specimen surface by an eyedropper or other suitable means, taking care not to touch the indicator ball. Place all the mixing water in the mixing bowl prior to introduction of the other materials for the batch. Measurements may be continued after hardening, if desired. NOTE 7—Automated recording of time and height is permitted as long as requirements for precision and accuracy are met Calculation Precision and Bias Therefore, results of two properly conducted tests by the same operator on the same material should not differ by more than 0.

Therefore, results of two properly conducted tests by the same operator on the same material should not differ by more than 1.

Report Report all change in height and time readings from the start of the test to conclusion, as percent versus time. Show the average of the data as a smooth curve.

Calculate the maximum change in height using the largest indicating chart reading obtained during the test period and report as increase or decrease. In the event that both increase and decrease result, report the maximum change in height. Data were from tests of specimens 4 in.

Historical Version s - view previous versions of standard. More C It is particularly applicable to grouting, patching, and form-filling operations where the objective is to completely fill a cavity or other defined space with a freshly mixed cementitious mixture that will continue to fill the same space at time of hardening. It would be appropriate to use this test method as a basis for prescribing mixtures having restricted or specified volume change before the mixture becomes hard.

This test method covers the determination of change in height of cylindrical specimens from the time of casting until the mixture is hard. If desired, this test method can be adapted to studies of changes in height involving different time schedules or other environmental treatment from the standard procedures prescribed by this test method. These include shrinkage or expansion due to hydration, settlement, evaporation, and other physical and chemical effects. The user may want to define this age as the time when a companion specimen of the same batch has reached the time of final setting by Test Method C paste , C mortar or grout , C concrete , or establish a predetermined age in minutes from the time the specimen is cast as the defined age to record the final measurement.
