Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

Bishal Gc said: (Jan 19, 2014)  
Setting time test is also done with the help of vicat's apparatus so the answer should be both B and C isn't it?

Anusha Sanne said: (Jul 13, 2014)  
Even setting time is found using vicat's apparatus.

Gali said: (Sep 24, 2014)  
It is used for both setting time and consistency.

Nikhil said: (Oct 8, 2014)  
Initial, final setting time and also consistency test are done by vicat apparatus.

Ankush Pounikar said: (Dec 27, 2014)  
Yes Vicat apparatus is also use for to find setting time.

Saikumar said: (Mar 1, 2015)  
Yes Vicat's apparatus is also used in setting time test. But consistence test done using of flunger and setting time test done using of needle.

Divyani Harpal said: (Aug 8, 2015)  
By Vicat's apparatus, we can also determine initial and final setting time.

Arvind Singh Rathore said: (Oct 20, 2015)  
It also used for setting time answer should be B & C.

Ram said: (Jan 18, 2016)  
Vicat apparatus is used far consistency test.

Bhimasi said: (May 10, 2016)  
Consistency test includes both initial and final setting.

Standard consistency of a cement paste is defined as that consistency which will permit a vicat plunger having 10 mm dia and 50 mm length to penetrate to a depth of 33-35 mm from top of the mould.

Harshal said: (Jul 16, 2016)  
This apparatus is also used for setting time test.

Bosco said: (Aug 2, 2016)  
@Bhimasi.

You are right Vicat test is testing consistence setting time, workability and flow. So B is the most correct answer.

Narendra said: (Sep 14, 2016)  
Setting time test is also done with the help of Vicat's apparatus so the answer should be both B and C isn't it?

Punith said: (Nov 8, 2016)  
But Vicat's apparatus is also used for initial setting time.

Santosh said: (Nov 25, 2016)  
As per my knowledge it's more familiar with Setting time.

Niraj Kumar said: (Dec 9, 2016)  
Initial, final setting time and consistency of cement laboratory test are from Vicat's apparatus.

Santhosh said: (Feb 21, 2017)  
Vicat apparatus is used for all three tests but difference is as below.

For consistency - Plunger.

For initial setting time- Needle.

For final setting time- angular collar.

Santhosh C said: (Feb 21, 2017)  
Consistency is cement paste which allows the PLUNGER to penetrate 33- 35mm from top.

Initial setting time- Needle which penetrates completely.

Final setting time- annular COLLAR can able to make impression on the cement paste.

Vivek Yadav said: (Apr 10, 2017)  
It should be Both setting time and consistency.

Bhaskar said: (Apr 17, 2017)  
I think both B and C is correct.

Venugopal said: (Jul 6, 2017)  
Both consistancy and setting time test used for vicat apparatus. Correct answer is B and C.

Bharat Sable said: (Oct 9, 2017)  
It should be Both C and B.

Nagur Shaik said: (Jan 4, 2018)  
The answer should be B&C whereas we can able to find constancy & setting time by using Vicat apparatus.

Hussain said: (Apr 12, 2018)  
Both consistency and setting time test used for Vicat apparatus. So, the Correct answer is B and C.

Eliza said: (Sep 29, 2018)  
Setting time is also done by Vicat apparatus. By making the paste of 0.85p where p is the normal consistency.

Kundan Nunia said: (Dec 30, 2018)  
It also includes setting time test.

Shams Ur Rehman said: (Mar 31, 2019)  
Standard Vicat Apparatus has a reversible stainless steel plunger and needle assembly for 300g total weight. It is used to determine consistency and initial/final set times of cements and mortar pastes.

Nitin said: (Jul 16, 2019)  
Vicat apparatus is used for initial, final setting time and std consistency test so option B & C is correct.

Rahul Khan said: (Sep 27, 2019)  
Consistency and setting time both tests are checked by Vicat apparatus.
