These test methods are intended for use as short-term tests for evaluating the physical properties of carbon brick and their chemical resistance at various temperatures in immersion service. These test methods provide a means of determining the following changes in the carbon brick specimen and the test media:
Weight, appearance, and compressive strength of the carbon brick specimen.
Appearance of the test media before, during, and after testing of the carbon brick specimen.
