The format for data on cement materials that is
described in this report is intended to aid in the
creation of a coherent system of concrete material
property databases. This preliminary document is a
guide that presents a recommended format for use in
computerization of concrete material property data. It
addresses the problem of distinguishing one cement from
another by providing a logical scheme for organizing and
subdividing material characteristics and parameters to
create a unique cement material identifier. The
organization and structure presented in this proposed
format provide a framework for cross-referencing cement
properties, data, and other information and is
consistent with the principles laid down in the standard
guides that have been prepared by ASTM Committee E-49
and which are due to be adopted by American Concrete
Institute (ACI) Committee 126. This preliminary
document is intended to assist the work of ACI Commitee
126 by providing a draft for use by committee members
and others who may offer suggestions for its
development. The document has been published on the
Internet World Wide Web and will provide additional
enhancements to reviews and feedback.
