Self consolidating concrete slump

31 Jan

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material.The highly fluid nature of SCC makes it suitable for placing in difficult conditions and in sections with congested reinforcement.

VSI values range from 0 for “highly stable” to 3 for unacceptable stability.

The spread can range from 18 to 32 inches (455 to 810 mm).

The resistance to segregation is observed through a visual stability index (VSI).

The following ASTM standard test methods have been developed to address these fresh concrete properties.

ASTM C1611—Slump Flow of Self-Consolidating Concrete This test is performed in a similar manner and with similar equipment as the conventional slump test—ASTM C143.
