Paper Title:
Key Techniques of Self-Compacting Concrete
  Abstract

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a new style of concrete with high workability. The key techniques of SCC including workability, strength, dimension stability, thermal properties and durability were investigated in this paper. High workability can be achieved at low water-cement ratio by adding superplasticizer. After adding inert powder such as limestone powder, the low strength SCC can be produced. The dimension stability of SCC can be improved by using expansive agent. Mineral and inert admixture can reduce the hydrate heat of binder and avoid temperature crack of concrete. The durability of SCC can be improved by controlling water-cement ratio, adding chemical admixtures and fibre.
