The highly fluid nature of SCC makes it suitable for placing in difficult conditions and in sections with congested reinforcement.
Use of SCC can also help minimize hearing-related damages on the worksite that are induced by vibration of concrete.
ASTM C1611—Slump Flow of Self-Consolidating Concrete This test is performed in a similar manner and with similar equipment as the conventional slump test—ASTM C143.
The slump cone can be either used the same way up or inverted.
“Self-consolidating concrete is changing the way concrete is being placed in today’s construction environment,” says Mark Bury, product line manager, BASF Admixtures, Inc.
“Technological advancements in admixtures and mix proportioning have resulted in a more fluid and stable concrete without the need for vibration for consolidation.” Test Method C 1610/C 1610M provides users with a procedure to determine the potential static segregation of self-consolidating concrete.
As a high-performance concrete, SCC delivers these attractive benefits while maintaining all of concrete's customary mechanical and durability characteristics.
Adjustments to traditional mix designs and the use of superplasticizers creates flowing concrete that meets tough performance requirements.
A new ASTM standard, C 1610/C 1610M, Test Method for Static Segregation of Self-Consolidating Concrete Using Column Technique, satisfies a need within the industry for a test method to measure the stability of self-consolidating concrete.
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.
It is defined as a concrete mix that can be placed purely by means of its own weight, with little or no vibration.
ASTM C 1621/C 1621M-06 The DGSI J-Ring Test Set is used to determine the passing ability of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) by the J-Ring Method.
