The slump flow test for high-workability concrete.
CEMENT CONCRETE RES
177 - 182.
Despite their inherent limitations, single-point workability tests continue to be used for the specification and quality control of concrete. The development of stable, high-workability mixes with a collapsed slump has led to the use of the flow test, more popular in Europe, and the slump flow test, used extensively in Asia. Results are given from a laboratory programme in which these two tests, and slump, were used on a range of concrete mixes. A good correlation between the flow and slump flow values was obtained. It is argued that the tests are therefore of equal value in assessing concrete properties, and hence the simpler and more convenient slump flow test is to be preferred. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd.
