Abstract

The physical properties of freshly mixed high performance concrete were investigated. Physical state and quality of fresh concrete were monitored batch by batch. The properties of fresh high performance concrete were determined in respect fos slump, slump flow, V-funnel flow, air content, temperature, and unit weight. It was observed that the properties are interrelated, particularly the flow and the air content. The indication of flowability was more pronounced in terms of V-funnel flow than slump flow. This result suggests that the traditional slump test is not efficient to evaluate the workability and flowability of high performance concrete.
