AbstractCompact circular specimens, made by subjecting lime to a load of 20,000 pounds, are directly treated in an autoclave at 295 psi for three hours. The resulting expansion values provide a means of verifying the soundness of the lime. The authors describe the techniques involved in the preparation of the compact specimens, the autoclave treatment and the measurement of the expansion that occurs. They also describe the advantages of this method.
