The compacting factor test of cement concrete determines its

  1. Strength
  2. Porosity
  3. Degree of compaction under load
  4. Workability

Answer- D. Workability

The compacting factor test of cement concrete determines its Workability.

Solution

Workability of concrete can be measured using slump, compaction factor and Vee bee timeThe compacting factor is defined as the ratio of the weight of partially compacted concrete to the weight of fully compacted concrete.

Degree of Workability

Compaction factor

Use for which concrete is suitable


Very low


0.78-0.80

Vibrated concrete for pavement road


Low 


0.80-0.85

Mass concrete foundation without vibration


Medium 


0.85-0.92

Less workable, flat slabs, manually compacted reinforced concrete

High

0.92-1.00

Highly reinforced concrete
