The consistency of cement can be determined by measuring the amount of water required to achieve plasticity, which is a measure of the consistency of a given cement sample.
The procedure involves preparing a sample of cement and measuring its initial weight, then adding a predetermined amount of water and mixing it with the cement sample until the desired consistency is achieved.
Then, the resulting cement paste’s final weight is measured and the increase in weight due to the addition of water is calculated to determine the consistency of the cement.
