Author(s): Roy N. Young
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 13-22
Abstract:The autoclave test is described as an indicator of expansive properties of cements. Data and descriptions of tests on hydration of free lime and mag-nesia in cements, and the relation of contraction to hi h C3A content in cements, are presented. If any commercial cements do not follow general trends indicated by data on C3A content. The use of the autoclave test for purpose of eliminating rare cases of excessive concrete expansion appears justified.
