BS EN 196-8:2010

Methods of testing cement. Heat of hydration. Solution method

Status : Current   Published : May 2010



This European Standard describes a method of determining the heat of hydration of cements by means of solution calorimetry, also known as the solution method. The heat of hydration is expressed in joules per gram of cement. This standard is applicable to cements and hydraulic binders whatever their chemical composition. NOTE 1 Another procedure, called the semi-adiabatic method, is described in EN 196-9. Either procedure can be used independently. NOTE 2 It has been demonstrated that the best correlation between the two methods is obtained at seven days for the solution method (EN 196-8) compared with 41 h for the semi-adiabatic method (EN 196-9).
