Abstract:
As known the product SCC comprises many advantages compared with traditional concrete but yet it has not changed the market of cast-in-situ concrete as expected. This may be related to some robustness problems of the concrete and to a general opinion that the product is considered to be expensive. However, SCC has become more robust over the last few years and manufacturers have improved their quality vastly. To increase the use of SCC, the actors of the building trade need to be informed how to benefit from all the advantages of SCC (i.e. the working environment the health and safety of the workers, the productivity etc). The paper deals with full-scale examples on the use and the realization of SCC obtaining several benefits during the whole project time. Specially, the economics and the working environment - are treated.
