Title: Role of Rheological Properties of Concrete in Design Innovations

Abstract:Rheological properties of fresh concrete are important both for the requirements for various production methods and for designing the desirable properties for a particular concrete. The research reported in this paper provides more basic information about factors controlling rheological properties of concrete. The results of the traditional slump test and Tattersall's approach (two-point test) are discussed. The relationship between paste and concrete rheological properties is evaluated. Rheological properties can play an important role in improving the engineering properties of concrete and provide valuable information for design innovations.
