Another advantage of SCC is that the time required to place large sections is considerably reduced.
When the construction industry in Japan experienced a decline in the availability of skilled labour in the 1980s, a need was felt for a concrete that could overcome the problems of defective workmanship.
Since its inception in the 1980s, the use of SCC has grown tremendously.
The development of high performance polycarboxylate polymers and viscosity modifiers have made it possible to create “flowing” concrete without compromising durability, cohesiveness, or compressive strength.
The flowability of SCC is measured in terms of spread when using a modified version of the slump test (ASTM C 143).
Current Developments in Self-Compacting Concrete Introduction Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a flowing concrete mixture that is able to consolidate under its own weight.New registration requests and e-commerce will not be available. Concrete Concrete Concrete Decorative Architectural Concrete Flowable Green Green Roof Pervious Roller Self Consolidating Self-consolidating concrete, also known as self-compacting concrete (SCC), is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that spreads into place, fills formwork, and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement, all without any mechanical vibration.Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is an innovative concrete that does not require vibration for placing and compaction.It is able to flow under its own weight, completely filling formwork and achieving full compaction, even in the presence of congested reinforcement.
