What is Workability of Concrete

Workability is a complex property of concrete which is defined as the ease with which it can be mixed, transported and placed in position within a homogenous state. Workability depends upon the quantity of water, aggregate grade and percentage of fine materials in the mix. Many researchers have tried with different parameters to measure the workability of the concrete and later found some of the tests which are very close to check the workability. The following tests are commonly employed to check the workability of concrete.

  1. Slump test
  2. Compaction factor test
  3. Flow test
  4. Kelly ball test
  5. Vee-Bee consistometer test.
  6. K-Slump Test

We usually perform Slump test on site and lab due its ease and results. It gives quick result about the workability of concrete.
