Advantages and Disadvantages of Self Compacting

Advantages of Self-Compacting Concrete. During concrete casting, the need for vibration is minimal and thus labor and time are saved. Creating a smooth concrete surface facilitates the gauging process. It shortens the construction period, thus reducing the construction and labor costs.

Self-compacting Concrete: Fresh Properties - Civil ...

Self-compacting concrete should have filing ability, which means it must be able to deform under its self-weight and flow around various obstacles in its path. This property is related to properties used to evaluate the flow, in terms of how far from the discharge the fresh SCC can flow, and the speed or velocity of deformation or flowing.

COMPACTION OF CONCRETE – PURPOSE, PROCESS

2016-2-17  Compaction is the process that expels entrapped air from freshly placed concrete and packs the aggregate particles together so as to increase the density of the concrete. The compacting and finishing of concrete are generally two separate operations but sometimes, particularly with flat horizontal surfaces, they become parts of the one operation.

Lightweight Concrete Produced Using a Two-Stage

The two-stage casting process maximizes the volume fraction of lightweight aggregates and consequently produces a lightweight concrete with the minimum density. A sample produced with aggregates that have a bulk density of 700 kg/m 3 exhibited a density of 1,500 kg/m 3 to 1,600 kg/m 3 and a compressive strength of 20 MPa to 30 MPa nominally.

Smart Dynamic Casting of Complex Concrete Elements

Postdoctoral researcher Ena Lloret-Fritschi explains that the process uses a type of self-compacting concrete that has been heavily retarded, to which a chemical admixture, or accelerator, is added just before it enters the formwork. “Smart dynamic casting [SDC] relies on close control of the concrete’s state of hydration,” she says.

Lightweight Concrete Produced Using a Two-Stage

The type of lightweight aggregate and its volume fraction in a mix determine the density of lightweight concrete. Minimizing the density obviously requires a higher volume fraction, but this usually causes aggregates segregation in a conventional mixing process. This paper proposes a two-stage casting process to produce a lightweight concrete.
