2016-8-2  The Effects of Free Fall on Concrete in Drilled Shafts, STS Consultants Ltd., report to the Federal Highway Administration, 1994. Although all the field studies have been for caissons, the results should also apply to other structural ele-ments such as walls, columns, and mat foundations. In the Chicago, IL, area, contractors routinely con-struct concrete caissons by allowing the concrete to free fall

Free Fall of Concrete Engineersdaily Free

2021-6-18  In 1994, STS Consultants conducted an extensive study of the effects of free fall on concrete.They placed concrete in four 60 ft (18 m) long, 3 ft (0.9 m) diameter drilled shafts. To assess concrete quality, they took standard 6 x 12 in. (150 x 300 mm) cylinders for each lift placed and compared them in lab tests to 4 in. (100 mm) diameter cores taken after the concrete was adequately cured.

Concrete fall height - ACI (concrete) Code Issues - Eng

2016-2-19  Studies done for drilled shafts and caissons show no significant difference in quality of the free falling concrete. Long ago it was thought that free falling increased segregation; however, several studies have shown that significant segregation does not occur in confined vertical free fall. Lateral movement of plastic concrete can cause segregation.

Of importance with this method is that the concrete must be directed to free-fall down the center of the cage and not make contact with the cage or shaft walls.

workability. Concrete should be deposited without striking the reinforcement cage during free fall to minimize segregation. Drilled shafts are routinely tested to ensure that proper placement has been accomplished, providing uniform concrete, and that the structural integrity is maintained. For the integrity testing, sonic tests are common.

Height Limits on Concrete Free Fall Concrete

1991-5-1  PCA's Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures (13th edition, page 104) specifically addresses your question. This source says the height of free fall of concrete need not be limited unless a separation of coarse particles occurs (resulting in honeycomb). If honeycomb does occur, a limit of 3 to 4 feet may be adequate.
