scope:

Freshly placed unconsolidated concrete contains excessive and detrimental entrapped air. If allowed to harden in this condition, the concrete will be porous and poorly bonded to the reinforcement. It will have low strength, high permeability, and poor resistance to deterioration. It may also have a poor appearance. The mixture should be consolidated if it is to have the properties desired and expected of concrete.
