Self Compacting Concrete
concrete that can flow around reinforcement and consolidate within formwork
under its own weight that exhibits no defects due to segregation or bleeding.
guiding principle for this type of concrete is that the sedimentation velocity
of a particle is inversely proportional to the viscosity of the floating medium
in which the particle exists.
