Keywords: construction; durability; high-strength; life cycle cost; maintenance; performance assessment; self-compacting concrete; structural concrete
Abstract:This paper contains an historical review of self-compacting concrete clarifies and the original concept. Further, combinations of self-compacting concrete for high strength and durability are discussed in relation to structural concrete design, construction and maintenance, and recent development of performance-based design codes and manuals for SCC. On the competitiveness in industries, life-cycle cost is estimated for sustainable development of the infrastructure.
