COMPARISON BETWEEN TECHNIQUES FOR MEASURING THE FLOW PROPERTIES OF ORDINARY PORTLAND CEMENT.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper compares the flow properties of ordinary portland cement as measured by both direct and annular shear testers. The results indicate that, for practical purposes, the unconfined strength of the grade of cement tested as measured by the annular cell is greater than the, supposedly, same parameter determined by the direct shear machine. This apparent difference means that the outlet dimension that is necessary to achieve reliable gravity flow from a storage hopper will be greater if the flow properties relevant to the annular cell are used rather than those obtained from the direct shear tester.
