Self consolidating concrete mix
In case of self-consolidating concrete (SCC), this is of critical significance given the high binder content of such concrete needed to ensure the required rheological properties.
The present study proposes an appropriate design approach for producing SCC of low carbon footprint (Eco-SCC).
The maximum powder content for an Eco-SCC mixture is set to 315 kg/m.
The design method is based on optimization of the volumetric proportions of sand and coarse aggregate according to an ideal particle gradation curve.
Selecting Self-Consolidating Concrete over a conventional mix does not compromise the durability and strength of the product.
Because SSC spreads under its own weight, it finds its way through even the most complex forms and congested reinforcement without the help of mechanical vibration.
The fluid nature of SCC also increases the speed of pumping.
At UCP we are achieving excellent results with our Self-Compacting Concrete mix, delivering consistent, exacting results for every project.
Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is a unique mix that flows into even the most heavily reinforced areas without any vibration, all while retaining the strength and durability of traditional concrete. Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) can: Reduce Construction Time Self-consolidating concrete’s workability increases the ease and efficiency of concrete construction.
