Paper Title:
Advances in Research on Influence of Raw Materials on Workability of Fresh Concrete: A Review
  Abstract

A literature review was carried out to identify advances in research on workability of fresh concrete via both experimental tests and modeling, especially high performance concrete and self-compacting concrete. As to the relationship between fluidity of concrete and that of paste, future research can be conducted in two aspects, i.e. one is the influence of the quantity of paste in concrete, and another is the influence of fluidity of paste affected by a couple of factors. Most literature proved that the flow of concrete depends both on positive effect and negative effect, the former promote fluidity, such as dispersing, filling and lubricating, and the latter restricts fluidity, such as formation of particle coagulation, an increase of wettable surface of solid particles and mechanical interlock.
