Shrinkage Cracking Resistance Property of Self-Compacting Concrete
Based on the project requirement of a nuclear power plant, using the method of free shrinkage test and ring cracking test, shrinkage cracking resistance property of grade C35 and C50 self-compacting concrete (SCC) with the optimized mix proportion was studied. The test results between SCC and ordinary vibrated concrete afforded by nuclear power plant project with the same grade were compared. The results indicated that the shrinkage cracking resistance property of SCC is prior to the ordinary vibrated concrete with the same strength grade. This kind of SCC can satisfy the nuclear power plant project, also the test results can be a reference of SCC design theory.
