The plate shall have a flat, smooth surface.

Prevent skin contact with wet cement or concrete by wearing suitable protective clothing. Wash wet concrete off the skin immediately. Licences can cover as few or as many users as you wish.
A version in any other language made by translation under the responsibility of a CEN member into its own language and notified to the CEN Management Centre has the same status as the official versions. It is desirable, especially in the case of new constituents or new concrete compositions, to test the consistence of fresh SCC before casting in place.
This European Standard specifies the procedure for determining the slump-flow and t time for self-compacting concrete. Lift the cone vertically in 1 s to 3 s in one movement without interfering with the flow of concrete. For dated references, only the edition cited applies.
A list of organizations represented on this committee can be obtained on request to its secretary. The report may include: If the plate is made from other materials, in-use performance test data shall be available which demonstrates long-term equivalence with steel plate.
The construction of the plate shall be such as to prevent distortion. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.
Subscription pricing is determined by: Clean the table and the cone and dampen immediately prior to testing, but keep free from excess moisture.
BS EN – Testing fresh concrete. Self-compacting concrete. Slump-flow test
Slump-test 3 Principle The slump-flow and t time is used to assess the flowability and the flow rate of self-compacting concrete in the absence of obstructions. Fill the cone in one operation without any agitation or mechanical compaction, and strike off surplus from the top of the cone. BSI is incorporated by Royal Charter.
