Physical testing of cement has traditionally been a very operator dependent process. Testing is labor intensive, time consuming work; and the volume of work produced is limited by the speed and capabilities of the Physical Tester. Proper training is critical to providing accurate and reliable test results on a consistent basis.
This training module was developed as a resource for new testers and a refresher for experienced testers. For each test, the videos will review the equipment specific to the ASTM method, the procedure, the calculation of results, and also provide helpful tips to improve the technicians’ knowledge and technique.
