Abstract

The prediction of concrete rheological properties is essential for the correct use of the material. The composition of the concrete is nowadays complex. It is not limited to cement, aggregates and water but also includes admixtures and fillers. Therefore it is necessary to be able to optimize the composition of a concrete based on a simpler system and in a laboratory. The method that is presented here, will allow to conduct measurements on cement paste, containing admixtures and fillers, and to predict the behavior of the concrete. The prediction should be possible at two levels: qualitative and quantitative. At the qualitative level, the values of the concrete rheological properties cannot be predicted but the ranking of the various compositions considered is the same in cement paste and concrete. At the quantitative level, a computer simulation is necessary to obtain the values of the concrete viscosity from the measurements on the cement paste or mortar. The two approaches will be presented here and some examples will be provided.
