Self-compacting concrete

Author: Geert De Schutter
Publisher: Dunbeath, Scotland : Whittles Pub. ; Boca Raton, Fla. : CRC Press, 2008.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English
Summary:
During the last decade, concrete technology has made an enormous advance through the introduction of self-compacting concrete. This book defines the key properties that make fresh concrete self-compacting and outlines test methods for its assessment. It covers the basic principles and underlying scientific theory, practical advice for production of SCC and its use in construction practice. It reviews all stages of  Read more...
