|Significance and Use|
4.1This test method provides a procedure for determining the compliance of steel slags and other materials with specifications or applications that limit permissible expansion of base and subbase aggregates containing components subject to hydration.
4.2This test method can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of aging or other treatments for reducing the expansive potential of such materials.
4.3This test method is utilized for dense graded materials passing a 25.0 mm (1 in.) sieve. If it is desired to investigate materials larger than a 25.0 mm (1 in.) sieve, Indiana Test Method ITM 219 should be considered.
4.4Test results have not been correlated with field performance, and values obtained do not necessarily indicate expansion that may occur in service conditions. The various methods will provide different numerical results due to differences in severity of the procedures.
1.1This test method covers the determination of potential volume expansion of steel slags that contain components susceptible to hydration and consequent volume increase, such as the free calcium and magnesium oxides.
1.1.1This method is based upon the Cement Autoclave procedure, Test Method , and the California Bearing Ratio procedure, Test Method . This is an aggressive test that can detect both calcium and magnesium expansion potentials. The procedure is also a rapid method typically completed within 24h.
1.2The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
Note 1:Sieve size is identified by its standard designation in Specification . The alternative designation given in parentheses is for information only and does not represent a different standard sieve size.
1.3This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.4This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
