Steel fibers are quite different from concrete components owing to the geometrical specialties. This difference causes some modifications in fresh concrete specialties owing to steel fibers. This situation occurs as a result of decrease in workability. Inverted cone, and if it is not possible Ye-be tests are determined in standards for steel fibered concrete. These tests can only be conducted under laboratory conditions due to the inexperienced workers and difficulties in construction site. For this reason relationships between conventional fluidity methods and the experiments determined for steel fibered concrete but difficult to conduct in construction site owing to the troubles was investigated in this study. A relationship was tried to establish between Ve-be test for steel fibered concrete, and slump and flow test conducted in construction site. A relationship between workability and consistency of steel fibered concrete was examined according to fresh concrete tests.
