  1. 1. Self-compacting concrete : properties of fresh and hardening concrete for civil engineering applications

    Author : Sofia Utsi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis consists of three papers, A-C. In Paper A the consequence of using self-compacting concrete for civil engineering applications regarding the fresh and young stage and possible consequences on production techniques are studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. Form pressure generated by self-compacting concrete : influence of thixotropy and structural behaviour at rest

    Author : Peter Billberg; Johan Silfwerbrand; Kamal Khayat; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-compacting concrete; thixotropy; structural build-up; form pressure; rheometer; viscometer; instrumented pressure tube; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Self-compacting concrete (SCC) offers rational and fast casting process since it merely has to be poured, or pumped, into the formwork without any compaction work needed. But this can be at the cost of high form pressure. However, reported results show that SCC can act thixotropically, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. High-performance and self-compacting concrete in house building. Field tests and theoretical studies of possibilities and difficulties

    Author : Markus Peterson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multi-storey residential buildings; Structural frames; SCC; Self-compacting concrete; High-performanceconcrete; HPC; Concrete; Building materials; Cast in-situ concrete;

    Abstract : Cast in-situ concrete is the most frequently used materials technology worldwide within production of structural frames in multi-storey residential buildings. In Sweden, this technology dominates the market but is challenged by other competitive production methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibre reinforced concrete : fracture mechanics methods applied on self-compacting concrete and energetically modified binders

    Author : Patrik Groth; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) is a type of building material that is increasing in use. As new types on concrete develops the need to update the knowledge on the use of fibre reinforcement increases. This thesis covers test methods for FRC that ranges from standard beam tests to sophisticated uniaxial tension tests. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical Modelling of Self-Compacting Concrete Flow : Discrete and Continuous Approach

    Author : Annika Gram; Johan Silfwerbrand; Ali Farhang; Mette R. Geiker; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SCC; rheology; Simulation of Flow; Simulering; Flöde; Självkompakterande Betong; Reologi; Construction materials; Konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : With the advent of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) that flows freely, under the soleinfluence of gravity, the wish for hassle-free and predictable castings even in complexcases, spurged the simulation of concrete flow as a means to model and predictconcrete workability. To achieve complete and reliable form filling with smoothsurfaces of the concrete, the reinforced formwork geometry must be compatible withthe rheology of the fresh SCC. READ MORE
