Effects of Internal Vibration on Flowability of Fresh Concrete ;;
Various concretes are used for construction works depending on the types of structure, building element and method of construction. An internal vibration work is one of the important processes for adequately pouring various concrete into a certain form. This study was undertaken to find out the effects of internal vibration on flowability of fresh concrete by concrete flow test under eight conditions of vibration. Presumable equation models also were created to show all vibration effects without regard to kinds of concrete. As the results of this study, the degree of vibration effects were varied according to the properties of concrete. Acceleration amplitude of vibration that applied to fresh concrete was effective value of the properties of vibration in a viewpoint of flowability. Moreover, This research presents the presumed equation models including variables created by acceleration amplitude and measuring value of vibrated concrete flow test. These models are presumable methods of vibration effects regardless of kinds of concrete.
