Self-consolidating, or self-compacting, concrete (SCC) uses mixture proportioning techniques and admixture technology to create a concrete mixture with increased fluidity, thereby avoiding the need for mechanical consolidation/vibration. SCC mixtures with various performance levels can be produced in the laboratory, but the know-how is sometimes lacking to do this on site. This book presents a foundation for consistently producing and applying SCC in a daily production environment. It links science with practical application and will be useful for both new practitioners and those already using SCC. The author uses stories and case studies throughout as examples of specific types of applications.
