Vebe Consistometer Test for Concrete
Vebe Consistometer, continued
The time for the complete remolding measures the concrete workability.
The Vebe test can determine how the concrete will behave during compaction. It is also especially useful for measuring samples that may be too stiff to be measured by a standard slump test.
Humboldt’s Vebe Consistometer method is based on the same principle of the simple slump cone test, but it has the advantage of a mechanized action. After removing the slump cone, the concrete undergoes a vibration to determine slump.
