According to USDOT-FHWA FP-14 (2014) and WSDOT M46-01 (2016), the slump test is a measure of the consistency of the concrete and a change in the slump test indicates that something in the manufacturing of the concrete has changed.
The slump test for measuring the workability of concrete is widely used to determine the flow characteristics of conditioned soils.
This confirms the obtained experimental data of slump test, flow time, bulk density, and L-box (Table 7).
"Now, beyond those products we have the ACE Slumper offering the Slump test in 4 minutes under full automation with 100% repeatability and self cleaning; the ACE H-Cap Scale, a high capacity scale with test guidance and operation; the ACE Atteberger, executing the PL and LL under full automation in approximately 30 minutes; the ACE Auto-Proctor, completing Proctor testing in full automation with 100% repeatability.
According to Australia Standards 1012.3.5-2015 (AS 2015), the workability of the HSC mixes with and without steel fibres was determined based on the slump test. The results of the slump test of fresh the mixes are presented in Figure 2.
However, the sympathetic slump test (SST) provoked the LBP and revealed limited left rotation.
The average depth penetration of three determinations is correlated with the standard slump test.
Test such as slump test was carried out on the wet concrete, while compressive and tensile strength tests were carried out on the hardened concrete.
