The influence of technological factors, chemical and mineral admixtures on pumping and thixotropic properties of concrete mixtures was studied. The causes of the loss of pressure when pumping concrete mixtures through channels of a complex section are established. Existing methods for calculating pressure loss during pumping of concrete mixtures are considered. Some results of pumping tests of modern concrete mixtures are given. It is shown that the use of powdered concrete with high mobility for pumping over long distances during the filling of long-span metal or bridge structures, concreting in tunnels where injection pressure is limited, can be the only solution in the implementation of these tasks.
