Sample text

Both very dry (low-slump) and very wet (high-slump) mixes are less workable. Cohesiveness: Cohesiveness is the element of workability which indicates whether a mix is harsh, sticky, or plastic. Plasticity is a desirable property in concrete, indicating that a mix can be molded and hold a shape when formed. A harsh mix lacks plasticity and the ingredients may tend to separate. Harshness can be caused by either an excess or deficiency of mixing water (high- or low-slump mixes), a deficiency of cement (lean mixes), or a deficiency of fine aggregate particles.

There is a certain range of consistency that is appropriate for each type of work. Workability is at a maximum in concrete of medium consistency with a slump between 3 and 6 in. Both very dry (low-slump) and very wet (high-slump) mixes are less workable. Cohesiveness: Cohesiveness is the element of workability which indicates whether a mix is harsh, sticky, or plastic.
