disc attached to the swivel arm is moved and is placed just on top of the
slump cone in the pot and before the cone is lifted up the position of the
concrete cone is noted by adjusting
the glass disc attached
to the swivel
? he cone is then lifted up and the slump is noted on the graduated
rod by lowering the glass disc on top of the concrete cone.
vibrator is then switched on and the concrete is allowed to spread out in
until the whole concrete surface uniformly adheres to the glass disc as indicated in Fig. 2 and the time taken
for this to be attained is noted with a stop-watch.

Concrete cannot be rolled int(l a haK1 between
the palms of the hands, but spreads out even
though slowly and without affecting the cohesion of the constituents
so that segregation
does not occur.
Concrete spreads uut rapidly and segrcgatlon
