Properties of self consolidating concrete for prestressed members

The maximum flowability is governed by the application, and since flowability is controlled by the composition of the mix, observations show that the rheological properties of SCC vary in a wide range, so does its robustness. top A lack of robustness can be manifested in several ways that affects workability and the other assigned properties of SCC, i.e., flowability, passing ability, and stability. The above findings were recently confirmed by Deshpande[vi] who changed the SSD moisture condition of sand and pea gravel two folds from a completely dry state of aggregates to twice the water content of SSD.
