Self consolidating concrete scc
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.
The highly fluid nature of SCC makes it suitable for placing in difficult conditions and in sections with congested reinforcement.
Self consolidating concrete, also known as self compacting concrete - a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that can spread in place, fill formwork and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation.
Self-compacting concrete with a similar water cement or cement binder ratio will usually have a slightly higher strength compared with traditional vibrated concrete, due to the lack of vibration giving an improved interface between the aggregate and hardened paste.
The concrete mix of SCC must be placed at a relatively higher velocity than that of regular concrete.
Utility Concrete Products specializes in Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC), also known as Self Compacting Concrete, which is a high-performing concrete that can be poured into place flowing over obstacles such as heavily reinforced structures and into complex forms with little or no vibration needed without segregating.
These features make Self-Containing Concrete highly workable.
In this project, the SCC was mixed on-site and pumped through a piping system to the specified point, located 200 meters away.
