The sample preparation, testing conditions, and procedures for the calorimeter test are summarized in Table 2.

The chemistry, Blaine fineness, and mineral compositions of these cements are summarized in Table 1. Print and complete the following order form. Samples should be sealed in a plastic bag inside a steel can, well protected against air and moisture. Three different intense mixing times of 45, 75, or asm were evaluated. The IM was conducted by pre-loading cement material into the testing vial and then injecting water into the sample vial followed by mixing action. The 3-day heat of hydration value can be used for specifying the limit of heat release for type II cements.

HoH values obtained from both calorimeter and the ASTM C methods, along asttm the strength results at various ages, are summarized in Table 7.

ASTM C186 – 17

Asym EM procedure involves mixing cement paste outside the calorimeter for certain amount of time and then transferring the paste to c86 testing vial for data collection. Extensive experiments were conducted to compare the heat release changes between IM and EM methods. This is particularly true during the early stages of cement hydration and strength development. In the present study, an extensive test program is conducted to measure and compare the heat of hydration obtained from both calorimeter and ASTM C test methods.

It is interesting to note that the heat release variation among the different intense mixing times mainly c1186 during the first 30 min of cement hydration.

These tools and subsequent procedures were used throughout this program. Therefore, for the purpose of standardizing the mixing procedure, 30 s of premixing followed by 75 s of intense mixing was used throughout the rest of this study. This was likely due to the insufficient mixing time to disperse the cement particles. The degree of relative relationship is used to assess the relative reliability of HoH obtained from the calorimeter and ASTM C methods. Instructions Sample mass should be grams 1 lb.


Such testing shall not be used for acceptance or rejection of the cement, but results shall be reported for informational purposes. The heat release from 30 min to 24 h for 75 and s of intense mixing time remains the same. The EM procedure with 30 s premixing and 75 s intense mixing time was used. The energy change during hydration is collected and registered by an automated data acquisition program.

However, it is important to point out that the calibration process of the calorimeter could potentially affect the heat value.

Testing Techniques ASTM C method [3]—This test method determines the HoH of hydraulic cement by measuring the heat of solution of the dry cement and the c1866 of solution of a separate portion of the cement that has been mixed with water and hydrated to a specified age; the difference between the heats of solution of dry cement and hydrated cement is the value of HoH for this cement at the specified age.

The heat release in the early minutes is highly variable; hence, its exclusion helps improve the statistical variances. The detailed descriptions of the procedures are listed in Table 3.

However, all heat release rates returned to approximately the same baseline after 30 min. Internal Mixing versus External Mixing There is a strong interest in the technical community to understand the HoH variation when the cement and water are mixed inside of the testing vial of the calorimeter versus the procedure when it is mixed externally prior to transferring the paste d186 the testing vial.

This is probably caused by the loss of the hydration heat during the EM time. Standard cement may be recommended for users to calibrate the calorimeter instruments. The heat release rates during the first 30 min are illustrated in Fig. In general, the variation in EM is slightly lower than the asmt observed with IM.

This measure is a useful parameter for comparing the degree of variation from one data series to another, even if the means are drastically different from each other. During this period, any lumps in the cement paste were broken down. The highest heat release is from 75 s of the intense mixing procedure.


Remember me on this computer. From Table 5, it can be seen that the variation in CV is very high in the first 30 min and is drastically reduced to the lowest level from 1 to 3 days. Alternate Tests Heat of hydration can be determined at any number of days.

The heat of solution of hydrated and unhydrated cement is determined through many steps involving tedious preparation of hydrated cement sample, the use of chemical agents, and analytical skills of wet chemistry.

The heat of hydration at 3 days showed the least variation in all calorimeter tests. This trend is graphically shown in Fig. Click here to sign up.

A total of 17 cements were tested in this program. The heat release variation was also reflected in the cumulative heat release as shown in Fig.

The results indicate that the isothermal conduction calorimeter method is a more reliable, less time-consuming, and less labor-intensive method than the ASTM C test method.

ASTM C – 17 Standard Test Method for Heat of Hydration of Hydraulic Cement

The heat loss at the early ages is mostly related to the unaccounted heat release before the cement paste was loaded into the test vial. The relationship of HoH of cement and strength development has been studied by many scientists and engineers. In addition, statistical evaluation was also conducted on the heat release data collected from both mixing methods. The heat release values are summarized in Table 4.
