Specific Heat

Lab ID: 55

Use
Measures mean specific heat by method of mixtures.

Instructions
Sample mass is 1 kg (2 lbs) with no particles larger than 25 mm (1 in. maximum) in size. Larger particles or samples will be crushed before testing. Specimen should be moist cured and shipped in a manner that does not allow drying.

Results Produced
Specific heat of a saturated sample. A specific heat for normally dry and oven-dry material is determined by calculation from the saturated sample value.

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