Concrete Consolidation

The process of densifying a concrete mix by lowering the volume and proportion of voids is known as Concrete Consolidation. Concrete could simply be consolidated if it behaved like a liquid, freely flowing into all corners of the form and preventing entrapped air pockets generated during installation. Consequently, we can rely on a process known as liquefaction to solidify the mixture. Liquefaction is the transient transformation of a solid into a liquid as a result of external shaking or quick loading. To achieve liquefaction of a fresh concrete mix, we must apply an independent force that liquefies the mixture and fills entrapped air pockets.
