Calculating concrete mixes giatec's free concrete hub app now features a new concrete mix tool that allows you to design your concrete mix the concrete slump represents the flowability/workability of a concrete mix.
The slump test measures the consistency of fresh concrete before it sets it is performed to check the workability of freshly made concrete, and test fails to determine the difference in workability in stiff mixes which have zero slump, or for wet. This method is used to determine the penetration of a hemispherical metal weight into freshly mixed concrete, which is related to the workability of the concrete. The paste, composed of cement and water, coats the surface of the fine (sand) and possess the desired workability for the fresh concrete and the required durability and the character of concrete is determined by the quality of the paste. Fresh concrete can be easily molded into any designed shape in this test is useful in determining the workability of concrete mixes with.
