The ultimate objective of this project was to develop widely accepted recommendations on self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixture design for its use in WisDOT bridge projects. This project investigated the effects of material constituents on the material properties of trial SCC mixtures made from precasters...

 

The high amount of confining lateral steel required by seismic design provisions for rectangular bridge columns can cause steel congestion. The high amount of confining steel may hinder the placement of conventional concrete (CC). Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) eliminates or reduces concrete placement...

 

The use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) for the manufacture of precast structural elements provides the benefits of increased rate of production, reduced labor needs (safety), and enhanced product quality. The same benefits apply to cast-in-place construction, especially with closely spaced reinforcing...

 

Recent studies have shown that the use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) results in improved finished quality, increased production efficiency, and reduced labor cost. Because of the favorable properties that SCC exhibits, the Federal Highway Administration and the precast concrete industry have been...
