Other Details:

  • The compaction factor is defined as the ratio of the mass of the concrete compacted in the compaction factor apparatus to the mass of the fully compacted concrete.

  • It involves dropping a volume of concrete from one hopper to another and measuring the volume of concrete in the final hopper to that of a fully compacted volume.

  • The results of the compaction factor test can be correlated to slump, although the relationship is not linear.

  • This test is difficult to run in the field and is not practical for large aggregates (over 1 inch) Compared to the slump test, the apparatus is bulky and a balance is required to perform measurements.

  • The apparatus, consist of a rigid frame that supports two conical hoppers vertically aligned above each other and mounted above a cylinder.

  • The top hopper is slightly larger than the bottom hopper, while the cylinder is smaller in volume than both hoppers.

  • To perform the test, the top hopper is filled with concrete but not compacted.

  • The door on the bottom of the top hopper is opened and the concrete is allowed to drop into the lower hopper.

  • Once all of the concrete has fallen from the top hopper, the door on the lower hopper is opened to allow the concrete to fall to the bottom cylinder.

  • The excess concrete is carefully struck off the top of the cylinder and the mass of the concrete in the cylinder is recorded.

  • This mass is compared to the mass of fully compacted concrete in the same cylinder achieved with hand rodding or vibration. Complete with trowel and tamping bar 0-60 cms long X 16mm dia.
