Abstract:
The tests with which this paper deals were made to determine the necessary flows to be used to give definite slum workability so that more careful measurement of concretes could be made using the flow-table instead of the slump test. The results indicate that the flow test is more sensitive than the slump test in differentiating between changes in the workability of concrete with changes in the quantity of water used.
