Vee Bee Consistometer
Vee bee test is the pure laboratory test to measure workability of fresh concrete. The workability of fresh concrete is defined as the amount of useful internal work necessary to produce 100% compaction. Vee bee test gives the time required to achieve compaction, which is related to the total work done; hence vee bee test is a good test to measure the workability of concrete indirectly.
