Paper Title:
Combinations of Various Self-Consolidating Concrete Test Methods and Workability Responses
  Abstract

Key workability characteristics of SCC can be described in terms of filling ability, passing ability, and resistance to segregation. These properties are typically characterized by data that relate to specific testing methods. In general, these methods include the components required for evaluating simultaneously filling ability, passing ability, and resistance to segregation, since these properties are rather interrelated. In this investigation, 33 SCC mixtures made with various mixture proportioning parameters, including maximum size and type of aggregate, type and content of binder, and w/cm were evaluated. Comparisons and correlations among various test results used in evaluating the workability responses obtained for these mixtures are established. This is done to highlight advantages and limitations of the various test methods that can be used to assess workability of SCC designated for precast, prestressed applications. Ranges of acceptance of the various test methods are also established.
