AASHTO T 160-17 Standard Method of Test for Length Change of Hardened Hydraulic Cement Mortar and Concrete (ASTM Designation: C157/C157M-14)
: Brown Technical Book Store
This test method covers determination of the length changes that are produced by causes other than externally applied forces and temperature changes in hardened hydraulic-cement mortar and concrete specimens made in the laboratory and exposed to controlled conditions of temperature and moisture. The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. An exception is with regard to sieve sizes and nominal size of aggregate, in which the SI values are the standard, as stated in specification E 11. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
