In this paper, two popular measures of workability, namely, slump and V-B time, are compared for plain and steel (hooked) fiber-reinforced concrete. The results are based on experiments made on both types of concrete with and without high-range, water-reducing admixture. The fibers were 50 mm (2 in. ) long with deformed ends glued together side by side into bundles (collated) with a water-soluble glue. The W-C ratio varied from 0. 3 to 0. 62. In terms of workability, the whole spectrum ranging from no slump concrete to flowing concrete was covered.
