Title: Industrial concrete construction for a better economy and working environment - possibilities and obstacles with self compacting concrete
Author(s): Mats Emborg & Peter Simonsson
Appears on pages(s): 47-60
Keywords: Cast in place concrete, industrialization, self compacting concrete, productivity, economy, robust SCC, mix design, aggregate packing
Abstract:The implementation of SCC together with new reinforcement and form techniques make it possible to increase the degree of industrialisation. It has been found in research at LTU that detailed planning and optimization of the building process, are essential utensils to successfully introduce such new techniques. However, also important is to address the technical issues hindering the marketing of SCC. Such issues are the robustness of the concrete and he surface quality. Thus, a discussion is given in the article on the optimization of robust SCC mixes and test results both from laboratory and building site as well as how criteria of SCC can be defined
