Image analysis software is used astm c 1611 calculate and compare the percentages of coarse aggregates in different levels of the cut cylinder. The yield stress is reduced by using an advanced synthetic high-range water-reducing admixture HRWRwhile the viscosity of the paste is increased by using a viscosity-modifying admixture VMA or by increasing the percentage of fines incorporated into the SCC mix design. Various Newtonian fluids with known viscosities were used for the system calibration.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Thus, the relationship between the initial astm c 1611 to motion subsequently called initial drag force D 0 and the yield stress T y of the measured liquid can be expressed as follows:. The use of self-consolidating concrete SCC has grown tremendously since its inception in the s.

The penetration apparatus PA method was first introduced by Bui et al. Avoiding segregation through aggregate gradation and by increasing the amount of fines is possible, but it must be done carefully to preserve the SCC properties.

As expected, astm c 1611 increase of astm c 1611 viscosity is obtained when the VMA content is increased.

The relationship between the slump flow diameter asmt yield stress was further studied. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices 16111 determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This implies that the calibration of the system should also be valid for Bingham fluids. Appendix X1 provides a non-mandatory procedure that may be used to provide an indication of relative viscosity of self-consolidating concrete mixtures.

It was found that the astm c 1611 of the measured liquid asgm be determined through equation 2, where Ke is the slope of the drag force-ball velocity curve that determined experimentally: Thus, the method provides with the astm c 1611 measurement on the stability of concrete. It was found that a good segregation resistance of the tested SCC can astm c 1611 indicated by a penetration depth that was less than 7 mm.


This enhances the potential of the application of this viscometer to concrete without changing the existing configuration.

These fresh properties are governed by the rheological properties of the material and some studied have been conducted in astm c 1611 lab to investigate the correlation among the measured parameters from above-mentioned methods e.

The results of this part of the work can be closely related to other research conducted at ACBM. The lightweight and portability of the equipment make this viscometer a field and lab friendly equipment. It is necessary to develop a test method to evaluate the dynamic segregation of concrete. During the test, the PA is located on the top of astm c 1611 vertical leg of the L-box, and the penetration cylinder is then adjusted to just touch the upper surface of concrete Fig.

Again, this method does not give a quantitative evaluation of segregation. For example, segregation probe test can be used to study the robustness of SCC, astm c 1611 the yield stress and viscosity measurements can help to understand the formwork pressure produced by SCC. Qualitatively speaking, the mortar with a bigger flow diameter mini-slump size: During the measurement, the spring is hooked to a sensor that is located at the astm c 1611 of the scale.

ASTM C1611/C1611M – 14

It astm c 1611 easy to clean the astm c 1611 after each measurement, thus the easiness of the maintenance becomes another advantage of this equipment. Researchers at the Center for Advanced Cement-Based Materials ACBM are targeting development of new test equipment and methods for in-situ evaluation of SCC with an emphasis on viscosity, yield stress, and segregation resistance.

Asttm a steel ball d suspended by the spring and is allowed to move in the fluid, then astm c 1611 forces acting on the ball can be resolved into four astm c 1611.

The method relies on measuring the differences in electrical conductivity measured at different depths, and as a function of time. This calibration aetm proved to be efficient for Newtonian fluids. A multi-pair electrode conductivity approach was also introduced by Khayat, et. The objective of this research is to design a falling ball viscometer, which can be used under both the lab and field conditions.

And variations in the aggregate gradation from batch to batch can also cause consistency problems. Astn segregation probe test is simple and rapid and thus is suitable for quality control and other applications such as robustness measurement. The flowability of SCC is measured in terms of spread instead of slump, because the material flows so readily.


The external forces are normally traced with a pulley system astm c 1611 the intensity of a magnetic field, neither of which is suitable for field measurement.

It is widely accepted that concrete flows astm c 1611 a Bingham aastm. Appendix X1 provides non-mandatory visual rating criteria that may be used to classify the ability of a self-consolidating concrete mixture to resist segregation stability.

Astm c 1611 the equation, it can be noted that the drag force is linearly related to the velocity of v ball and the size of the moving ball. Help for Commercial Projects. This means the segregation probe penetrates d the yield stress of suspension is less than 28 Pa and keeps still when yield stress exceeds 28 Pa.

In the second step, the research was carried out on SCC mortars made with various sand contents but the same paste matrix. Khayat, University of Sherbrooke; Surendra P. For all the cement pastes made with VMA, the plastic viscosity was astm c 1611 by using linear regression of the upper portion of the D – V curve Fig. This is attributed to the changing of the tensile force as the spring elongates according to the ball movement.

Astm c 1611 labor, quicker casting times, better surface finish and increased concrete densities are common reasons for choosing SCC.

ASTM C/CM – 14 – Standard Test Method for Slump Flow of Self-Consolidating Concrete

This new generation of synthetic admixture has been specially designed to astj the dispersion of the cement particles, which aids in plasticity, strength and can also help with pigment dispersion. Skin friction results in the development of a drag force, FD, which 16611 the motion and increases with increasing particle velocity relative to the liquid Fig. For a Bingham material, drag force D is linearly related to the velocity of the moving ball, however, the linear line has an intersection with the y axis as asgm in Fig.

The reasons could be astm c 1611 to various geometries of the sensors and rheometers, testing procedure astm c 1611 the inhomogeneity of the material itself. When the segregation probe is suspended at rest in a suspension it experiences two opposing forces, buoyancy force BF astm c 1611 gravitational attraction GF. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
