At first, the viscosity of the bentonite slurry with different proportions was tested, and bentonite-conditioned standard sand was used for a slump test. The standard sand moisture content is still fixed at 5%.
The slump test is used to determine variations in the uniformity of mix of given proportions.
The slump test method is a simple way of estimating the yield stress of the soil since the yield stress is expressed as a function of water content, height of cylindrical frustum, slump height and material density (Mendez-Sanchez, 2012).
Workability of concrete was measured by slump test. Cylinders having diameter 150 mm and height 300 mm were cast.
