Place a straight edge, preferably the tamping rod, across the slump mold base, with one end suspended over the pile of concrete. Using a tape or ruler, measure the distance from the bottom of the straight edge to the displaced center of the slumped concrete. Record your results to the nearest 1/4 of an inch.
How to Measure Concrete Slump?
Concrete slump is a measure of the consistency of concrete. It is measured by filling an mold with concrete, then measuring the depth of the indentation made by a weighted object dropped into the center of the mold.
There are two types of slump: slump cone and Abrams cone. The slump cone is the most common type of mold used to measure concrete slump. It is a cone–shaped mold that is open at the top and has a pointed bottom.
The Abrams cone is a mold that is similar to the slump cone, but it has a rounded bottom. The slump test is used to determine the consistency of concrete. It is a simple test that can be performed on site.
The test is quick and easy to set up, and it only requires a few materials. The slump test is performed by filling a mold with concrete, then dropping a weighted object into the center of the mold.
The object should be allowed to sink into the concrete for a few seconds before being removed. The depth of the indentation made by the object is then measured.
