Definitions for "Slump test"
a test for assessing the mobility of the pain-sensitive structures in the vertebral canal.
a measurement of the fluidity of concrete. A slump test helps to determine the strength of the concrete before it has hardened.
This is a test to determine the plasticity of concrete. A sample of wet concrete is placed in a cone-shaped container 12" high. The cone is removed by slowly pulling it upward. If the concrete flattens out into a pile 4" high, it is said to have an 8" slump. This test is done on the job site. If more water is added to the concrete mix, the strength of the concrete decreases and the slump increases. See Kelly ball, slump, slump cone, and slump loss.
