Self-Consolidating Concrete

Definition: fresh concrete that can flow around reinforcement and consolidate within formwork under its own weight without vibration.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is highly flowable, nonsegregating concrete that can spread into place, fill the formwork, and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation. In general, SCC is concrete made with conventional concrete materials and, in some cases, with a viscosity-modifying admixture (VMA). SCC has also been described as self-compacting concrete, self-placing concrete, and self-leveling concrete, which all are subsets of SCC.
