Abstract: Various test methods have been developed to measure behaviour of fresh cement paste. Workability indicators are developed based on different test methods. These indicators are applicable only for a specific range of workability. An attempt has been made to establish applicable range of workability for various test methods and correlate the workability indicators of any two tests for a given mix. However, it is observed that the indicators are applicable to distinct ranges of workability and therefore no unique indicator can address a
wide range of cement paste workability. Further, effort has been done to modify the mini flow table test that attempts to address a wider range of cement paste workability. The modified mini flow table test was found to be applicable to a wide range i.e. very low to very high workable mix.
