Abstract: Flow value and slump are applied for the evaluation of consistency of polymer-modified sprayed mortar. These values are very easy to use, but can’t explain the consistency in detail. Moreover the prediction of pumpability, rebound and sagging are almost impossible, because flow value and slump are not physical quantity. Therefore new evaluation indexes are required to improve the construction quality. A viscometer with four vanes was used for evaluate the fresh properties of polymer-modified sprayed mortar in this study. And the applicability of this technique was examined. As a result, the recommendation of experimental conditions for the evaluation of polymer-modified mortar is presented. Moreover, new evaluating indexes derived from the - curve, the curve of shear stress in dependence of the rotational angle of vane, were proposed.
