1.8SampleProcessing— Three procedures (moist, airdry, and ovendry) are provided to process thesampleto obtain a specimen. The procedure selected will depend on the type ofsample, the maximum particle-size in thesample, the range of particle sizes, the initial conditions of the material, the plasticity of the material, the efficiency, and the need for other testing on thesample.
Apr 05, 2020· 1. Thecement sampleis first taken and rubbed with hands to ensure thecement sampleis free of lumps. 2. About 100g of thecement sampleis taken and duly weighed (W1). 3. Then, the 100g ofcementtaken is poured in the 90 µm sieve and the lid is closed. 4. The sieve with thesampleis placed in the Sieve shaking machine for about two minutes.
The appropriatesieving methoddepends on the degree of fineness of thesamplematerial (fig. 1).Dry sievingis the preferredmethodfor the size range between 40 µm and 125 mm. However, the measurement range is limited by properties of thesamplesuch as a tendency to agglomerate, density or electrostatic charging.
Themethodinvolved: 1) obtaining a representativesampleof different size portions of RCA as suggested by Abbas et al. 18 ; 2) washing the aggregate with tap water and drying in an oven set at ...
Apr 10, 2015· After thedrymeasurement has been taken, measure the length of the specimen adjacent to the balls to the nearest 0.5 mm and record this as the ‘drylength’.CalculationThe initial drying shrinkage or drying shrinkage is calculated as the difference between the original wet measurement and thedrymeasurement expressed as a percentage of ...
ThencalculateR as the mean of R1 and R2 as a percentage, expressed to the nearest 0.1 percent. When the results differ by more than 1 percent absolute, carry out a thirdsievingandcalculatethe mean of the three values. Reporting of Results Report the value of R, to the nearest 0.1 percent, as theresidue…
Apr 01, 2017· Yet raindrop impact is not simulated in wetsievingprocedures. Forexample, mean values ofDRYaggregate stability for all sites determined by RS were approximately 14% lower than values determined by WS . ForDRY—WS, aggregate stability in 0.02 M CaCl 2 was 66% compared with 55%by DRY—RS in 0.02 M CaCl 2.
Aug 31, 2020·Example: Forexample, consider a large bucketfullof melons of approximately the same size. The gaps between melons are large in size depending upon the size of melons. Now consider this bucket filled with berries, this time it contains very small size of voids between berries but total number of voids are more in comparison to first case.

After propersieving, record thesampleweights retained on each sieve and find out the cumulative weight of retained particles as well as cumulative % retained on each sieve. Finally add all cumulative percentage values and divide the result with 100. Then we get the value of fineness modulus.

Jun 18, 2014·Calculatefinenessof cementusing following formula. Where, S = Specific surface area. K = Apparatus constant. ρ = Densityof cement. t = Time. Technical discussion. Finenessof cementhas a great effect on the rate of hydration and hence the rate of gain of strength. Finenessof cementincreases the rate of evolution of heat.
Jan 30, 2018·Cement test1.CEMENT TEST2. Welcome to Civil Engineering 3. Introduction In general,cementis described as material used to bind the mineral fragments called aggregates Thecementpaste acts as glue which makes a cohesive mass with all the aggregates This bonding is important as the concrete fails not because of less strength of aggregates but mainly due to failure of bonding
