Self-Compacting Concrete: Materials, Properties and Applications presents the latest research on various aspects of self-compacting concrete, including test methods, rheology, strength and durability properties, SCC properties at elevated temperature, SC manufacturing with the use of SCMs, recycled aggregates and industrial by-products. Written by an international group of contributors who are closely associated with the development of self-compacting concrete, the book explores the main differences between SCC and normal concrete in terms of raw materials, fresh properties and hardened properties. Other topics discussed include the structure and practical applications of fiber reinforced SCC. Researchers and experienced engineers will find this reference to be a systematic source to SCC with its accounting of the latest breakthroughs in the field and discussions of SCC constructability, structural integrity, improved flows into complex forms, and superior strength and durability. Offers a systematic and comprehensive source of information on the latest developments in SCC technology Includes mix design procedures, tests standards, rheology, strength and durability properties Explores the properties and practical applications of SCC

Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a relatively new buildingmaterial. Nowadays, its use is progressively changing the method ofconcrete placement on building sites. However, the successful use of SCC requires a good understanding ofthe behavior of this material, which is vastly different fromtraditional concrete. For this purpose, a lot of research has beenconducted on this area all over the world since 10 years. Intended for both practitioners and scientists, this book providesresearch results from the rheological behavior of fresh concrete todurability.

The State-of-the-Art Report of RILEM Technical Committee 228-MPS on Mechanical properties of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) summarizes an extensive body of information related to mechanical properties and mechanical behaviour of SCC. Due attention is given to the fact that the composition of SCC varies significantly. A wide range of mechanical properties are considered, including compressive strength, stress-strain relationship, tensile and flexural strengths, modulus of elasticity, shear strength, effect of elevated temperature, such as fire spalling and residual properties after fire, in-situ properties, creep, shrinkage, bond properties and structural behaviour. A chapter on fibre-reinforced SCC is included, as well as a chapter on specialty SCC, such as light-weight SCC, heavy-weight SCC, preplaced aggregate SCC, special fibre reinforced SCC and underwater concrete.

This book highlights the importance of incorporating coal bottom ash (CBA) into self-compacting concrete exposed to aggressive conditions. The incorporation of CBA in concrete is a sustainable strategy to prolong the lifespan of concrete. The content of the book is also regarded as a solution to the environmental issue. It helps academics, researchers, and students to acquire a better understanding of the influence of coal bottom ash on the properties of concrete through four sequential chapters. The book first presents background information on concrete deterioration, and then the improvement in properties of self-compacting concrete with different percentages of CBA exposed to tap water, sulphate solution, chloride solution, and seawater.
