040 4 These optional requirements apply only if specifically requested. Availability should be verified. a The optional limit for the sum of the tricalcium silicate and trfcalcium aluminate in Table 2 shall not be requested when this optional limit is requested. These strength requirements apply when either heat of hydration or the sum of tricalcium silicate and tricalcium aluminate requirements are requested. c When the heat of hydration limit is specified, it shall be instead of the limits of C3S.

Where such control for measures are not applied, problems may occur, overliming may result, with the consequent instance, presence of uncombined (free) lime in the finished product. 4). The reason for the unsoundness is that the hydration of CaO, overburned at the high temperature in nature of the cement kiln, is slow and expansive which cause excessive volume increase and can underliming is stresses. Incidentally, also undesirable because such portland cements have slow and low strength-productions [Barton 19651.
