Self consolidating concrete slump


The slump cone can be either used the same way up or inverted.A sample of freshly mixed concrete is placed in the cone in one lift without tamping or vibration.Use of SCC can also help minimize hearing-related damages on the worksite that are induced by vibration of concrete.Another advantage of SCC is that the time required to place large sections is considerably reduced.1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard.

Several test procedures have been successfully employed to measure the plastic properties of Self-Consolidating Concrete.The slump flow is the average of the two diameters.The slump flow test allows a comparison of the lateral flow and filling potential of different SCC mixtures.Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material.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.
