Abstract:This paper describes rapid testing methods for determining blocking behaviour, deformability and segregation resistance of self-compacting concrete. Laboratory test results have shown that the proposed methods can reduce the required extent of laboratory testing and enable the tests to be carried out in less time. A simple apparatus for segregation resistance testing is also proposed. This apparatus and modified L-box apparatus are considered useful for rapid testing of segregation resistance, deformability and blocking behaviour of fresh self-compacting concrete.
