SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION
This method is used to determine the heat of hydration of cement in mortar, during the hardening process. The test procedure is identical to NT Build 388 and gives a specification regarding the mix proportion of the tested mortar. The heat developed is described as the amount of energy produced for different maturity ages of the mortar. To be able to define the heat development as energy per mass unit of cement, it is necessary to know the heat capacity of the components in the mortar.
