Self-Compacting Concrete (ICE Themes) provides information on the key research undertaken in developing this most logical and practical advancement in the field of concrete technology. Self-compacting concrete is commonly, highly flowable, with ability to negotiate through tight openings without blocking, while remaining homogeneous and stable in the fresh state. These characteristics have led to global research into self-compacting concrete that is demonstrated in this book. This volume reveals the wide range of materials that have been used in designing a self-compacting concrete mix including the use of common cements, fly ashes and nanoparticles, natural aggregates, lightweight aggregates and recycled and secondary aggregates amongst others.

Self-Compacting Concrete (ICE Themes) includes coverage of

  • history, development and overview
  • designing self-compacting concrete
  • influence from constituent materials
  • fresh and hardened properties of self-compacting concrete
  • use of self-compacting concrete in structural concrete
  • handling of self-compacting concrete.
This book has been compiled using the information published by ICE Publishing and highlights the research undertaken. It would make an ideal addition to any library as a resource for researchers seeking an overview of the latest work on this topic.
