Optimising Construction With Self Compacting Concrete

Self–compacting Concrete A Paradigm Shift

The construction activity should have minimal interference with the environment. Self-compactability is desirable to attain rationalized and labor saving effects in production and placing of concrete. Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a highly engineered material that addresses these requirements of high fluidity and no segregation.
