The invention provides a novel probe comprising multiple conductivity electrodes, which can be used to monitor various types of time-dependent processes in aqueous suspension, slurries, pastes, etc. for example, fresh cementitious materials, such as grouts, mortars and concrete. The processes which can be monitored as function of time through this novel method can be either "physical" or "chemical"; physical-type processes comprise settling, sedimentation, segregation, water migration, surface bleeding, channelling, etc.; chemical-type processes comprise dissolution or precipitation of solids, and any reactions involving the solution and solid phases present in the slurry.
