Bleeding is one important indicator that is related to the physical and mechanical properties of fresh and hardened concrete. Standards generally prefer methodologies that are similar to one another to measure the bleeding of fresh concrete. The preferred test apparatus used in the standards is troublesome because it requires a manual test procedure and repeated measurements until final setting of the fresh concrete. The functional bleeding test apparatus presented in this study will ease test performance and eliminate the faults caused by the test procedure and the experimenter.
