Title: Strength, Durablity, and Shrinkage of Incompletely Compacted Concrete
Author(s): B. S. Heaton
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 846-850
Abstract:An experimental investigation was carried out to determine the effects of different levels of compactive effort on the compressive strength, durability, and shrinkage of concrete over a range of workabilities. Results show that even when increase in water content alone is used to increase workability, at low levels of compactive effort comparable with those used in normal building construction, maximum strength may be achieved with high workability high water content concrete.
