This test method provides a technique incorporating a thermogravimetric analyzer to determine the mass changes of hydraulic cement upon heating in an inert gas environment. The data can be used to determine the abundance of some mineralogical components in hydraulic cement powders. Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. This test method is applicable to hydraulic cement powders.
