We show that the rheological characteristics of a fresh cement paste can be determined from inclined plane tests.The apparent flow curve measured from inclined plane flows coincides with the apparent rheogram from classical rheometer tests and the flow curve obtained from local Couette flow measurements with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In order to describe the thixotropic properties of these fluids we suggest to use a simple model, the four parameters of which may be determined from specific, practical, inclined plane experiments.► Cite this publication as follows:

Particle fluid separation is studied in the case of slow squeezing flow of dense clay suspensions. The fluid pressure gradient generated by the test induces heterogeneity in the sample. Experimental water content measurements at different time points through the test allow the quantification of this separation phenomenon. The problem equations are written in the case of purely extensional flow. Based on Terzaghi principle, Darcy.s law and a Cam Clay type constitutive equation, the influence of the permeability function on the predicted void ratio evolution is studied. It is then shown that a certain water amount is strongly linked to the grains and cannot be extracted from the sample using simple compression. This critical water amount is then taken in account in the permeability function in order to predict the compression load through the test.► Cite this publication as follows:

In this paper after a presentation of the compression test and its classical references in the rheological literature a behaviour parameter identification method is introduced using simple compression tests on concentrated geo-suspensions with a plastic fluid behaviour. The obtained theoretical test response is validated for several materials (natural soils, Kaolin clay .). It is also compared with previous solutions obtained by other authors to show that most existing solutions miss one or more terms. Elements are also given on two types of test response perturbations: the induced heterogeneity in the case of slow tests (consolidation phenomena) and the fragmentation of the outer part of sample (granular paste breakings). Finally, compression test results for a nano silica paste are presented as a example and treated as an application of the test exploitation method.► Cite this publication as follows:
