Two statements associated with concrete are given. Select the correct option with regard to these statements.
1: As the compaction of factors increases, the slump decreases.
2: The slump test helps in qualitatively understanding the setting time of concrete.
The compaction Factor test gives the behavior of fresh concrete under the action of external forces.
The compaction factor test has been held to be more accurate than the slump test, especially for concrete mixes of medium and low workabilities, i.e., compacting factor of 0.9 to 0.8, because the test is more sensitive and gives more consistent results.
As from the given graph, the compaction factor increases slump increases.
A slump test is a measure indicating the consistency or workability of fresh cement concrete. This test can also be used to determine the water content to give a specified slump value.
