CRD C036 Themal Diffusitity

Lab ID: 53

Use
Measures thermal diffusivity of concrete ? an index of the facility with which a material will undergo a temperature change.

Instructions
A 6x12-in. cylinder is preferred. Inquire about other acceptable sizes. Cast specimen with a Type T thermocouple sensor located at the mass center. Specimens must be moist cured and shipped in a manner that does not allow drying.

Results Produced
Thermal diffusivity of a saturated sample.

Time for Results
Please contact a CTLGroup chemical services representative or Project Manager to discuss your individual project needs and testing response times.
