Rodded Unit Weight and Slump Masses measured include the mass of the measure used and a glass plate. These masses were subtracted from the measured values in order to obtain the mass of water. The temperature of water used in the experiment was recorded in order to determine its density. The volume of the measure was determined as the volume of the water. All recorded data can be found in Table X. Table X Wt. of Measure 5.15 lbs Wt. of Measure + Glass Plate 9.22 lbs Wt. of Measure + Glass Plate + Water 15.3 8 lbs Temperature Water 23 °C Density Water @ 23.0 °C 62.2 4 lbs/ft 3 Volume of Measure 0.10 ft 3 Water reducer was added to the mix in order to examine slump. The amount of water reducer added to the mix compared to the amount of slump can be found in Table Y. Table Y Mi x Water Reducer (mL) Slump (in.) 1 0 2 2 4 2.25 3 8 3.5 Compressive Strength for Concrete Cylinders Four cylinders were tested for compressive strength. Two of these cylinders were tested after a setting period of 24 hours, while the other two were tested after a setting period of seven days. During the testing, one of the cylinders failed along the end exposed during setting and curing, one failed in a cone and split pattern, and the remaining two failed in a columnar pattern. Data for each of these test cylinders can be found in
