THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FRESHLY MIXED CONCRETE FOR PRECASTING

TO FIND A MIX-DESIGN FORMULA WHICH WOULD ALLOW HANDLING IN THE FIRST HALF HOUR AFTER MIXING, VARIOUS TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT IN THE LABORATORY TO ESTABLISH THE PROPERTIES OF FRESH CONCRETE AFTER DEMOLDING: BULK DENSITY, EASE OF PLACING, APPEARANCE, ABILITY OF THE CONCRETE TO RETAIN ITS PROPERTIES UNDER THE EFFECT OF A VARIATION IN THE PROPORTION OF A CONSTITUENT, MECHANICAL STRENGTH VALUE, AND DETERMINATION OF THE COEFFICIENT OF INTERNAL FRICTION AND THAT OF COHESION. /RRL/
