Vibration of self consolidating concrete

24 Mar

Fortunately, this also leads to a durable material because water, precipitation, and aggressive chemicals or ions are shed by the surface skin.

The construction industry has always longed for a high-performance concrete that can flow easily into tight and constricted spaces without requiring vibration.

Delivery methods include cast-in-place, precast, and tilt-up, and in every case, good appearance is essential.

Achieving good surface characteristics requires thorough consolidation of the fresh concrete and thoroughly filled forms.

Self-consolidating concrete is required to flow and fill special forms under its own weight, it shall be flowable enough to pass through highly reinforced areas, and must be able to avoid aggregate segregation.

This type of concrete must meet special project requirements in terms of placement and flow.
