PUMPABLE CONCRETE

THE INTRODUCTION OF THE SMALL-BORE MOBILE CONCRETE PUMP HAS LED TO A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN THE USE OF PUMPS FOR THE PLACING OF CONCRETE. THIS PAPER DESCRIBES THE WORK CARRIED OUT AT THE BUILDING RESEARCH STATION TO INVESTIGATE THE FACTORS AFFECTING THE PUMPABILITY OF CONCRETE. IT IS TO SOME DEGREE A PRELIMINARY PAPER IN THAT FURTHER WORK IS REQUIRED AND IS CONTINUING. HOWEVER, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE VOID CONTENT AND PUMPABILITY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED AND A SIMPLE APPARATUS TO MEASURE THE VOID CONTENT HAS BEEN PRODUCED. /AUTHOR/
