Aci self consolidating concrete
Applications of self-consolidating concrete also include columns and beams, pumped concrete, foundations, and other applications where a flowing concrete will be beneficial to concrete placement.
SDC is supporting a 2015 World of Concrete Forum on self-consolidating concrete, sharing best practices and success stories by concrete industry experts - engineers, contractors and owners.
ACI is also co-sponsoring the 6th North American Conference on Design and Use of Self-Consolidating Concrete.
The conference is designed to bring researchers and practitioners together to exchange the latest ideas, knowledge, and tools to build the future of concrete construction as it relates to design, construction and manufacturing of self-consolidating concrete.
ASTM C1611—Slump Flow of Self-Consolidating Concrete This test is performed in a similar manner and with similar equipment as the conventional slump test—ASTM C143.
The slump cone can be either used the same way up or inverted.
