Abstract:
The presentation will discuss measurement techniques to evaluate surface settlement of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) and will highlight the relationship of such workability characteristic with the resistance of concrete to segregation and bleeding. The presentation will discuss the influence on surface settlement on key materials characteristics, including bond strength to embedded reinforcement, top-bar effect, and homogeneity of in-situ properties of flowable concrete and SCC.
