Test Method Title
Standard Test Method for Sampling and Testing Grout
Slump, temperature, compression strength
Description of Test
A representative sample of freshly prepared grout is obtained and tested for temperature by ASTM C1064 and slump by ASTM C143. Compressive strength specimens are prepared by placing grout into three square molds having a height twice their width (with a minimum width of 3 inches). Molds are removed within 24-48 hours after preparing then transported to the laboratory and stored in a moist room until compressive strength testing is performed as specified in ASTM C39.
Preferred Test Sample Size
2 or more portions taken at regularly spaced intervals during batching not exceeding 15 minutes
Number of Test Specimens
slump - 1 temperature - 1 compressive strength - 3
Test Specimen Size
3" x 3" x 6"
