Properties of hardened SCC Mechanical properties Properties of hardened SCC are expected to be similar to, or better than, those of a comparable conventional concrete mixture. Changes in mixture proportions and in fluidity can influence the hardened properties, which can diverge from what is commonly expected from conventional concrete. If specific key properties are important in a particular […]

Slump flow/VSI (filling ability/deformability and stability)

The slump flow test is a measure of mixture filling ability, as shown in Fig. 2.9. This test is performed similar to the conventional slump test using the standard ASTM C143-2006 [152] slump cone. Instead of measuring the slumping distance vertically, however, the mean spread of the resulting concrete patty is measured horizontally. This number […]
