Abstract:
Once a Self-Consolidating Concrete mixture is developed the recipe is created and certain performance criteria are expected on site. Some variability in fresh properties can be expected, but the goal is to minimize these variations in order to facilitate construction. When a change occurs between batches how does the producer respond? In some instances, allowable adjustments to material proportions and/or admixture dosages must be made. Who decides which adjustments to make? This presentation discusses a process by which a concrete producer can establish protocol for making adjustments in order to establish greater consistency within a project where SCC is used.
