Abstract

Cementitious composites with customized rheologies are becoming increasingly popular throughout a wide variety of civil engineering applications. Assessing their fundamental rheological properties is crucial for the success of a particular application. Their measurement is not a trivial task and typically requires dedicated and expensive equipment. These equipment may not be compatible with field applications and not even available in every laboratory. Correlations between fundamental rheological properties and field test measurements have been assessed, as for the yield stress versus the slump flow diameter. As for the plastic viscosity, different attempts have been made, with flow time parameters measured from different tests. This work provides further evidence to the aforementioned correlations, with reference to a broad range of cement pastes and mortars formulated from SCCs, as well as employing a tool for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling developed by the authors.
