To supplement on-the-job training, ACI has developed the ACI Physical Testing of
Cement Training Video as a resource for new testers and a refresher for experienced
testers. The following tests are included:
ASTM C109 – Compressive Strength
ASTM C151 – Autoclave Expansion
ASTM C185 – Air Content
ASTM C187 – Normal Consistency
ASTM C191 – Vicat Time of Setting
ASTM C204 – Blaine Fineness
ASTM C266 – Gillmore Time of Setting
ASTM C1437 – Flow of Mortar
Additionally, the video includes a review of safety, equipment, and the laboratory
environment. Each chapter reviews the equipment specific to the ASTM test, the
test procedure to follow, and the calculation of the result. Helpful tips are provided
throughout to improve the technicians’ knowledge and technique.
