Describes a new and simple apparatus called the "K-Slump Tester" used to measure the slump of concrete in 1 min. Over 450 tests were performed in several centers. The results show that there is good correlation between the K-slump measured with the tester and the slump measured with the standard cone. Use of the apparatus is simple and economical.
