Abstract

A companion paper by the authors described the mix design procedure and gave several examples on the use of the design charts. This paper is concerned with the experimental validation of the mix design procedure on a series of SCC mixes in both the fresh and hardened states. A series of SCC mixes that contained different volumetric ratios of paste to solid phases were prepared using the design charts. All these mixes were extensively tested in the fresh state using the slump cone, J-ring, L-box, and V-funnel apparatus. These tests proved conclusively the validity of the mix proportioning method in the sense that all the mixes satisfied the self-compacting criteria and achieved the desired target plastic viscosity and compressive strength.
