Self consolidating concrete for precast prestressed concrete bridge elements
This report presents recommended guidelines for the use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) in precast, prestressed concrete bridge elements.These guidelines address 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. Barnes Developed by: ACI Committee 237, Self-Consolidating Concrete, and Joint ACI-ASCE Committee 423, Prestressed Concrete. The papers relate to SCC in prestressed applications and are organized as follows: 1) mixture proportioning; 2) mechanical properties; 3) time-dependent deformations; 4) flexural and shear behavior; 5) bond behavior; 6) prestress losses; and 7) the structural behavior of full-scale precast prestressed elements made with SCC. French Any applicable errata are included with individual documents at the time of purchase.
Errata are not included for collections or sets of documents such as the ACI Collection.
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.
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.
This CD is a collection of papers prepared for a session held at the ACI 2007 Fall convention in Puerto Rico on the hardened properties and performance of SCC developed for use in precast prestressed applications.
