Abstract

The present article is an attempt to establish basic composition-property relations for fresh concrete, using the two-phase composite materials approach and the law of plastic viscosity. Results of common practical tests of unit weight, slump test and Vebe test on systematic fresh concrete series, performed by the authors, are presented and are expressed through the following analytical models: the simple mixture rule for the unit weight:
