Title: Super-Workable Concrete for Precast Applications
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:Super-Workable Concrete (SWC), also termed self-compacting or self-consolidating concrete (SCC) in other parts of the world, is a relatively new class of concrete in the Australian construction industry. A product of several years of research and development by universities and laboratories as well as
concrete and admixture companies around the world, SWC is intended to fill every corner of the mould or formwork with little or no vibration to reach full compaction. This paper will examine the experiences of a precaster and an admixture supplier working together to develop SWC mixes appropriate to the precast environment.
