R. et al. , Bagneux, France, 303–310, 2006. 2 Casting and curing Depending on the methods used, the samples will be cast in various kinds of moulds, vessels, etc. which are often specified together with the curing conditions in standards describing the respective testing method. Thus, in the following some general aspects concerning sample casting and curing will be mentioned, without going into too much detail. For the individual methods, the reader is referred to the respective chapters. 17 for an example) are suitable for many purposes, such as hydration studies.
1997) for an example of such a calorimeter. g. in European Standard EN 196-8 (2010) or in American Standard ASTM C186 (2013). Heat of hydration is calculated from the measured heats of dissolution of a cement paste sample that has hydrated for 7 days and of the dry cement powder. Solution calorimetry has significantly decreased in use in the last decades as the acids needed to dissolve the samples pose severe occupational hazards. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is used to study the heat effects of changing the temperature.
While some materials such as calcium aluminate cements, portland cement and burnt or hydrated lime as well as dry mix mortar formulations (especially fast-setting ones) are sensitive towards alteration during storage, the sensitivity decreases generally with decreasing reactivity of the material. While slags still have a certain tendency to prehydration, fly ashes or inert fillers have a much lower or no tendency to change properties during storage. In cases of doubt, one should check prehydration phenomena by the methods used in the publications referred to previously.
