THE WORKABILITY OF CONCRETE
The workability of concrete is the subject of the following chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Empirical methods of measurement; (3) The soil mechanics approach; (4) Rheology of concentrated suspensions I: Materials with linear flow curves; (5) The rheology of fresh concrete; (6) Practical requirements for workability; (7) Factors affecting workability; (8) Rheology of concentrated suspensions II: Materials with non-linear flow curves; (9) The rheology of cement pastes; (10) Conclusions. Appendixes include the following topics: (A) Soil mechanics equations; (B) Flow through a capillary tube; (C) Coaxial-cylinders viscometer equations; (D) Selected definitions of rheological terms; (E) Standards specifications for measurement of workability.
