1. Tests and Standards
2. Rheology and Workability of SCC
3. Production and Placement of SCC
4. Strength Properties of SCC
5. Permeation Properties of SCC
6. Shrinkage and Creep of SCC
7. Carbonation and Corrosion of SCC
8. Properties of SCC at Elevated Temperature
9. Properties of SCC with Recycled Aggregates
10. Properties of SCC with Industrial By-Products as Aggregates
11. Properties of SCC with Supplementary Cementing Materials
12. Properties of Fibre Reinforced SCC
13. Structural Performance of SCC
14. Practical Applications of SCC


One of the major advantages of self-compacting concrete is that it maintains all the durability and characteristics of conventional concrete while meeting expected performance requirements. Self-Compacting Concrete: Materials, Properties and Applications presents the latest research on various aspects of self-compacting concrete including tests & methods, rheology, strength and durability properties, SCC properties at elevated temperature, SC manufacturing with use of SCMs, recycled aggregates and industrial by-products.

Written by an international group of contributors, closely associated with the development of self-compacting concrete, Self-Compacting Concrete: Materials, Properties and Applications, explores the main differences between SCC and normal concrete in terms of raw materials, fresh properties and hardened properties. Other topics include: fibre reinforced SCC, and structural and practical applications of SCC. Researchers and experienced engineers will find this reference systematic source to SCC both in terms of understanding the latest breakthroughs in the field and its applications to improved constructability, improved structural integrity, improved flows into complex forms, superior strength and durability.
