A concrete rheometer and its application to a rheological study of concrete mixes

  • Osundo J. Uzomaka


Various civil engineering constructions below ground level such as diaphragm walling stabilize the excavation with bentonite mud. The structural wall is then formed by tremmieing fluid concrete mixes into the bottom of the excavation thereby displacing the resident mud. Our Group of Companies makes extensive use of this type of system and Cementation Research Ltd. has carried out research into various aspects of this subject.
