Discusses the proportioning of no-slump concrete using ACI 211.3, Recommended Practice for Selecting Proportions for No-Slump Concrete, as well as alternate procedures developed in studying no-slump mixes for roller compacted concrete applications. Some of the ideas presented are worthy of consideration in proportioning normal slump concrete as well as no-slump concrete.
