slump test

[′sləmp ‚test]
(engineering)
Determining the consistency of concrete by filling a conical mold with a sample of concrete, then inverting it over a flat plate and removing the mold; the amount by which the concrete drops below the mold height is measured and this represents the slump.

slump test
A procedure using a slump cone for measuring the slump of concrete.

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).
Measuring of a concrete mixture's rheological properties started with a slump test at temperature +15 [+ or -] 1[degrees]C.
Slump Tests: Slump tests were performed on both control and latex modified concretes and the results are presented in Fig.
Il primo gruppo e stato testato mediante SLR (eseguito con step progressivi di aggiunta di componenti di movimento all'anca), il secondo gruppo mediante SLUMP test (eseguito con step progressivi di aggiunta di componenti).
Tests carried out include: Sieve analysis, Specific gravity, Moisture content, Slump test for the concrete mix.
Neurodynamic tests were performed both before (once) and after (twice) the injections, with the SLR used to assess the group injected in the tibialis anterior, and the slump test used to assess the second group.
But it takes a short time to make a second album, so I wanted it to pass the slump test.
The use of highly fluid concretes, the rheology of which cannot be suitably characterized with the slump test (ASTM C 143 [1]) alone, has resulted in the emergence of many new methods for characterizing the flow of freshly mixed concrete.
By comparing slump test results, where an inverted bucket of concrete is used to demonstrate the viscosity of the mix, the fluidity of the self-compacting mix is immediately apparent.
Figure 3, page 18, shows a county inspector conducting a slump test on a grout fill for a concrete masonry unit (CMU) wall.
This simulation can be done by placing the previously printed and examined slump test printings that were evaluated at ambient temperature in a box oven set at 150[degrees]C for two minutes.
