Mini-Flow Test

The mini-flow test (Zhor and Bremner 1998) is a variation of the mini-slump test described in the above subsection. The plexiglass sheet used in the modified version of the mini-slump test is mounted to a standard flow table, as described in ASTM C230. After the mini-slump cone is lifted from the sample of cement paste, the table is dropped 15 times in 15 seconds. The rest of the test procedure is unchanged. The mass of the cement paste is measured in order to determine air content. The results of the mini-flow test reflect the addition of energy to the cement paste. The mini-flow test is more appropriate than the mini-slump test for stiff mixes.
