The properties of hardened concrete can be significantly improved by fibres. However, the addition of fibres to fresh concrete results in a loss of workability. Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is an innovative concrete that is able to flow under its own weight, completely filling formwork and achieving full compaction without vibration.
Case study continued…. • Self-compacting concrete was used for the wall of a large LNG tank belonging to the Osaka Gas Company. (1) the number of lots decreases from 14 to 10. .000 m3. • The volume of the self compacting concrete used in the tank amounted to 12. (2) the number of concrete workers was reduced from 150 to 50.
PowerPoint Presentation: INTRODUCTION By the early 1990's, Japan has developed and used SCC. Self compacted concrete is highly engineered concrete with much higher fluidity without segregation and is capable of filling every corner of formwork under its self weight .
• Self- compacting concrete (SCC) developed by Professor Hajime Okamuraof Kochi University of Technology, Japan, in1986 • During his research, Okamura found that the main cause of the poor durability performances of Japanese concrete in structures was the inadequate compacting of the concrete in the casting operations.
SELF COMPACTING CONCRETE INTRODUCTION A special type of concrete of flowing consistency. Developed initially in Japan in 1980s to offset the growing shortage of skilled labour. The composition in addition to cement and water, consists of high amount of super plasticizer, high powder content and a viscosity modifying agent.
Sep 12, 2014· Experiment of SELF CONSOLIDATING CONCRETE fresh property test in the University of Asia Pacific Concrete Lab.
A new segregation-controlled design methodology is introduced for self-compacting concrete (SCC). The theory suggests that aggregate segregation is governed by the yield stress, viscosity, and density of the cement paste matrix.
Self-Compacting Concrete – Procedure for Mix Design … Test Methods . Self- Compacting Concrete is characterized by filling ability, passing ability and resistance to segregation. Many different methods have been developed to characterize the properties of SCC. Contact Supplier
This paper describes a procedure specifically developed to achieve self-compacting concrete. In addition, the test results for acceptance characteristics for self-compacting concrete such as slump flow, J-ring, V-funnel and L-Box are presented.

Specification & Guidelines for Self-Compacting Concrete 7 6 REQUIREMENTS FOR SELF-COMPACTING CONCRETE 6.1 Application area SCC may be used in pre-cast applications or for concrete placed on site. It can be manufactured in a site batching plant or in a ready mix concrete plant and delivered to site by truck. It can then be placed either
The participating concrete producers collected data using the procedures recommended in the draft of Nordtest NT BUILD "Quality control of fresh self-compacting concrete - Workability, air content, density and casting of test specimens". The concrete producers also were asked to comment on their experience with the test procedures.
Self compacting concrete is a high-performance concrete which is highly flowable or self-leveling cohesive concrete that can be easily placed in the tight reinforcement. It is also known as super workable concrete.
Self-compacting 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 …
This standard covers the test method for slump flow of self-compacting concrete with a maximum coarse aggregate size of 40 mm or less. 2. Apparatus 2.1 A slump cone specified in JIS A 1101 (Method of test for slump of concrete) shall be used. 2.2 The plate shall be made of steel and sufficiently watertight and rigid. It shall be
APPLICATIONS Self-compacting concrete has been used in bridges and even on pre-cast sections. One of the most remarkable projects built using self-compacting concrete is the Akashi- Kaikyo Suspension Bridge, Japan In this project the SCC was mixed on-site and pumped through a piping system to the specified point, located 200 meters away .
Global Powder Type Self-Compacting Concrete Market Professional Survey Report 2018 - This report studies the global Powder Type Self-Compacting Concrete market status and forecast, categorizes the global Powder Type Self-Compacting Concrete market size (value & volume) by manufacturers, type, application, and region.
A self compacting concrete has the properties such as filling ability, passing ability and segregation resistance. Various workability tests methods are available for self compacting concrete such as slump flow tests, V-funnel test, L-box test, U-Box test, Fill box test etc.

5.1 This test method provides a procedure to determine the slump flow of self-consolidating concrete in the laboratory or the field. 5.2 This test method is used to monitor the consistency of fresh, unhardened self-consolidating concrete and its unconfined flow potential. 5.3 It is difficult to ...
The J-Ring test is standardized as ASTM C 1621, "Passing Ability of Self-Consolidating Concrete by J-Ring." The J-Ring is a cage of rebar that is set up around the slump cone. The slump flow test is run both with and without the J-Ring in place and the passing ability is the difference in slump flow.
