This book provides a detailed overview of the rheological behaviour of concrete, including measurement techniques, the impact of mix design, and casting. Part one begins with two introductory chapters dealing with the rheology and rheometry of complex fluids, followed by chapters that examine specific measurement and testing techniques for concrete.
The focus of part two is the impact of mix design on the rheological behaviour of concrete, looking at additives including superplasticizers and viscosity agents. Finally, chapters in part three cover topics related to casting, such as thixotropy and formwork pressure.

Tutvustus Sisukord Autori biograafia Arvustused Goodreads'ist Roussel, a researcher at the French Institute of Transport Sciences and Technologies, unites contributors in physics, chemistry, and fluid mechanics of materials. Chapters in part I explain methods for measuring the rheological behavior of concrete, covering topics such as the rheometry of complex suspensions, concrete rheometers, industrial testing, and the rheology of cement during setting.
Part II deals with mix design and the rheological behavior of concrete, with four chapters on particle packing, superplasticizers, viscosity-enhancing admixtures, and fiber reinforcement. Part III addresses casting and the rheological behavior of concrete, offering four chapters on modeling the flow of self-compacting concrete, thixotropy, formwork pressure generated by fresh concrete, and pumping of conventional vibrated and self-compacting concrete.
With its distinguished editor and expert team of contributors, Understanding the rheology of concrete is an essential reference for researchers, materials specifiers, architects and designers in any section of the construction industry that makes use of concrete, and will also benefit graduate and undergraduate students of civil engineering, materials and construction.
Provides a detailed overview of the rheological behaviour of concrete, including measurement techniques, casting and the impact of mix design The estimating, modelling, controlling and monitoring of concrete flow is comprehensively discussed Chapters examine specific measurement and testing techniques for concrete, the impact of mix design on the rheological behaviour of concrete, particle packaging and viscosity-enhancing admixtures Estimating, modelling, controlling and monitoring the flow of concrete is a vital part of the construction process, as the properties of concrete before it has set can have a significant impact on performance.

Empirical Tests 5. Which is directly related to workability and is an empirical test.
Then, the shear rate is decreased gradually and the stress is measured. The relationship between the stress and shear rate is plotted and the intercept at zero-shear rate is the yield stress, while the slope is the plastic viscosity. When the stress is high enough the concrete will start flowing. The point at which the materials flow is the yield stress and the slope of the curve above this stress is the plastic viscosity.
