The report examines the selection of constituent materials, proportioning of concrete mixtures, testing methods, fresh and hardened concrete properties, production and quality control issues, and other aspects of SCC.
"A very interesting and useful book for all the different practitioners in the concrete industry.
Such guidelines will provide highway agencies with the information necessary for considering SCC mixtures that are expected to produce a uniform product, expedite construction, and yield economic and other benefits.

It uses descriptions and case studies throughout, as examples of specific types of applications, to identify where the practitioner needs to focus attention.
This book bridges the gap between research and practice.
It links science with practical application, describing a number of projects and types of applications where SCC has been used successfully.
It will be useful for new practitioners as well as for those already using SCC.The lack of standard tests and training has also hampered widespread use of SCC.Limited and non-systematic information regarding properties of hardened SCC mixtures typically used in precast, prestressed structural applications is available to bridge engineers.Each necessary step is thoroughly dealt with and explained in a nice and pedagogic way." —Peter Billberg, Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute (CBI) "Quite comprehensive and with a narrative style at the practitioner level." —Lloyd Keller, Director of R&D and Quality Assurance, Ellis Don, Canada Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is an innovative material used successfully throughout the world.It is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that can spread into place, fill the formwork, and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation, improving the overall efficiency of a concrete construction project.There is also uncertainty about key engineering properties of SCC, such as stability, strength development, creep and shrinkage, and durability.
