Abstract

An investigation of the volume change during the setting of silicic acid gel was made using a precision mercury dilatometer. The effects of varying the silicate and acid concentrations were studies. The heat of neutralization of the acetic acid and sodium silicate was compensated for to prevent any heat expansion in the gel. Also discussed are the theories of the setting of the gel.
