This European standard describes a method of determining the compressive and flexural strengths of cement mortar. This standard describes the reference procedure; it allows the use of alternative procedures only in well defined cases provided that they do not affect the results significantly as specified in clause 11. In the event of a dispute, only the reference procedure described in this standard shall be used, excluding any alternatives. The method applies to the cement types defined in ENV 197-1. It may not be applicable to other cement types, for instance on account of their initial setting time.
