Testing Of Fresh And Hardened Concrete

Chapter 5 - Testing of Fresh and Hardened Concrete ...

Routine standard tests for fresh concrete include workability, air content, and matu- rity. The most common, and often the only, testing of hard- ened concrete is measuring compressive strength and/or flex- ural strength.

COMMON TESTS ON THE FRESH CONCRETE

21/03/2013  Slump, air content, unit weight and compressive strength tests are most common tests. Slump is a measure of consistency, or relative ability of the concrete to flow. If the concrete can’t flow because the consistency or slump is too low, there are potential problems with proper consolidation.

Four test methods, reflecting different stress states at the bond between the fresh and hardened concrete, are evaluated. The four methods are a slant shear test, an indirect tension test and two different flexure tests. The slant shear test is shown to be consistent and the most sensitive test in showing the strength of the bond, and was used to evaluate the effect of the following parameters ...

6 FOCAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE IN FRESH AND HARDENED

21/02/2019  Consistency is the aspect of workability related to the flow characteristics of fresh concrete. It is an indication of the fluidity or wetness of a mix and is measured by the slump test. Fresh concrete is placed in a metal cone. When the cone is removed, the concrete slumps a certain amount depending on how fluid it is. A wet, soft mix slumps ...

What are the Properties of Fresh Concrete?

In this test samples of fresh concrete is taken in a metallic cone and compacted by a specified vibrator to an ultimate shape of a flat cylindrical mass. Total time taken for this process, in seconds, is recorded. This is called V-B time and gives a measure of compatibility of the concrete. This test is useful in determining the workability of concrete mixes with aggregates size up to 20 mm ...

Modelling the dispersive behavior of fresh and hardened ...

The propagation of longitudinal ultrasonic waves through fresh and hardened concrete materials is strongly affected by dispersion and this is clearly indicated experimentally from the change of phase velocity at low frequencies. Analytically, only few attempts have been made to explain this dispersive behavior through enhanced elastic theories. The most commonly used higher order theory is the ...

Definition of Fresh and Hardened Concretes

05/02/2016  Definition of Fresh Concrete - Fresh concrete is that stage of concrete in which concrete can be moulded and it is in plastic state. The potential strength and durability of concrete of a given mix proportion is very dependent on the degree of its compaction. It controls the long term behavior, Ec (elastic modulus), creep, and durability.
