How to Measure Rheology of Concrete?

Rheometers are devices that are used to determine the fresh properties of concrete or rheological properties of concrete. It is used in the study of concrete rheology. The device provide trustworthy test results for concrete mixture with all range of workability ratios.

Rheometers for Study of Concrete Rheology

Rheometers to Test Concrete Rheology

The word rheometer is derived from Greek and it means a device for measuring the flow. Before, the names galvanometer and ammeter (devices used to measure electric current), these devices where given the name rheometer. 

A rheometer is a laboratory device that is used to measure the way in which a liquid or suspension or slurry flow in response to a applied force.

Features of Rheometers

  1. Rheometers are used for those fluids, which cannot be defined by a single value of viscosity. It provides more parameters to be set and measured to define the rheology of a fluid.
  2. Rheometers measures the rheology of a fluid.

Types of Rheometers

The two main types of rheometers are:
  1. Rotational or Shear Type Rheometers
  2. Extensional Rheometers
Rotational or shear rheometers are rheometers that controls the applied shear stress or shear strain. Extensional rheometers are rheometers that apply extensional strain or extensional stress to study the rheological behavior of concrete fluid.
