FRESH CONCRETE FROM THE LABORATORY TO THE CONSTRUCTION SITE

LE BETON FRAIS DU LABORATOIRE AU CHANTIER

THERE IS A GENERAL BELIEF THAT CONCRETE WORKABILITY IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SATISFACTORY MECHANICAL STRENGTH. THE AUTHORS STRESS THE FACT THAT, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, EASE OF PLACING AND QUALITY OF CONCRETE CAN BE COMPATIBLE. WORKABILITY IS DEFINED, WHICH IS VALID FOR A RANGE OF CEMENT PROPORTIONING AND NUMBER OF LAYING TECHNIQUES. THIS DEFINITION LEADS TO A MIX-DESIGN METHOD AND A SIMILITUDE RULE WHICH ESTABLISH A RELATION BETWEEN THE PREPARATION OF CONCRETE AND ITS LAYING IN BOTH SAMPLES AND STRUCTURES.
