Abstract:
This guide includes a short history of and information on the basic design and operation of equipment, frequently called mobile mixers, used to produce concrete by volumetric measurement and continuous mixing (VMCM). Definitions, applications, and quality assurance testing are discussed. The use of this equipment is compared with weigh-batch-mixing equipment to highlight some of the limited differences.
