The following ASTM standard test methods have been developed to address these fresh concrete properties.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.
A common range of slump flow for SCC is 18 to 30 in. The slump flow test can be used in production to assess the consistency of SCC.
Several test procedures have been successfully employed to measure the plastic properties of Self-Consolidating Concrete.
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.
The highly fluid nature of SCC makes it suitable for placing in difficult conditions and in sections with congested reinforcement.
In Japan, the volume of SCC in construction has risen steadily over the years.
