compacting factor

compacting factor

The ratio of the weight of concrete which fills a container of standard size and shape (when allowed to fall into it under standard conditions of test) to the weight of fully compacted concrete which fills the same container.

A similar analysis to slump was carried out for compacting factor based on the standard compacting factor test results as shown in Fig.
W is the estimated consistency parameters which include slump, compacting factor and vebe time, corresponding to a given PC-FA-MK concrete mix.
For simplicity, 5 mm can be taken as the prediction interval, which increases the confidence of prediction and is in a very good agreement with the accuracy requirement specified by British Standards; similarly, 0.02 (2[sigma]) and 1 second (2[sigma]) based on statistical outputs can be reasonably and reliably taken as the prediction interval for predicting compacting factor and vebe time, respectively.
Development of a multivariate statistical model for consistency parameter prediction including slump, compacting factor and vebe time for concrete incorporating FA and MK is described.
