Horizontal!

yes you are absolutely correct. underwater concreting measures the slump flow. not the slump height.

What's the problem, it was probably waterproof cement...👍

And in fact cement should be kept moisturized for optimal curing...😉

I have witnessed Contractors laying Tarmac down in the pouring Rain on several occasions.

After time, it will just peel up like delaminated Tyres

It's not cement it's concrete

If you connected all Thai women in just one family, in series, you could  light up Manhattan.

Amazing Thailand: Contractor tries pouring cement on flooded road .

 

My dad use to pore concrete floors in water in cellars long time ago, they said that they did that so it would seal 100% .

What is uproar!  The guy like a good soldier follow the instructions pour the cement and he did just that!  Was he told if raining don't pour?  The truck was loaded cement mix ready to go he can't just return it and get a refund leaving in the truck would have just renter the truck future useless!  The guy made the right decision dump it on the road the location ordered jack hammering it is much easier done on the road than inside the truck tank!🤣

Best critical decision I've heard  here in Thailand!

In case you were in any doubt, laying concrete in ankle high water isn’t a good idea.

 

According to the experts, pouring concrete in the rain is only likely to ruin your construction project. 

 

That's why there are so many holes in the country.

A fair and balanced article would come back after the concrete sets and note the results.

But the concrete goes with the flow.

Have actually done this on a boat ramp got caught by the tide came in faster and higher than i expected, but its still there and ok after 40 years of use.

 

Also did it and concrete came out impeccable. Did my research first ... concrete cures by chemical reaction even underwater.

You can mix or add activators for the cement to cure under water.

Not that i think he did though.

down the nearest drains?   to harden later when the rain stops. Is it likely that the next flooding in that street will be noticeably more?
