BS EN 12350-2:2019

Testing fresh concrete. Slump test

Status : Current   Published : July 2019



This document specifies a method for determining the consistence of fresh concrete by the slump test. The slump test is sensitive to changes in the consistence of concrete, which correspond to slumps between 10 mm and 210 mm. Beyond these extremes the measurement of slump can be unsuitable and other methods of determining the consistency should be considered. If the slump continues to change over a period of 1 min after withdrawing of the cone, the slump test is not suitable as a measure of consistence. The test is not suitable when the declared value of D of the coarsest fraction of aggregates actually used in the concrete (Dmax) is greater than 40 mm.
