Fuzzy Comprehensive Evaluation Method for Workability of SCC


Article Preview

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) has been widely used in engineering for improving the product quality and efficiency at the construction sites, enhancing the working conditions and the appearance of concrete. Workability is an important property of SCC. But none of a single method has been developed for evaluation workability of SCC efficiently. Aiming at the quality control of fresh SCC, a fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method for evaluating workability of SCC was put forward and a case study was done by measuring slump, slump flow, L-box ratio, J-ring flow, bleeding and sieve segregation of fresh SCC in the present paper. Evaluation results indicated that fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method can give a quantitative evaluation of workability of SCC and it is convenient to establish an expert system for controlling the quality of fresh SCC by using fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method.
