ASTM C1090

Full Name

ASTM C1090 – Standard Test Method for Measuring Changes in Height of Cylindrical Specimens of Hydraulic-Cement Grout


This test method covers measurement of the changes in height of hydraulic-cement grout by the use of 75 by 150-mm (3 by 6-in.) cylinders, when the cylinders are protected so that the tendency to change in height does not include evaporation so as to cause drying, uptake of moisture, carbonation, or exposure to temperatures outside the range 23 ± 2.0°C (73 ± 3.5°F) or, optionally, to another specified temperature controlled within ±2.0°C (±3.5°F).
