The ACI Foundation’s Strategic Development Council has identified self-consolidating concrete as an Industry Critical Technology.

SDC works to identify obstacles to industry adoption of self-consolidating concrete, formulates strategies to address obstacles, and determines specific tasks to execute strategies.

As the SCC viscosity can be adjusted depending on the application, the yield stress must remain significantly lower than other types of concrete in order to achieve self-consolidation.

At this time, various mix design methods have been proposed in order to obtain the unique rheological performances of SCC and may lead to different mix designs for a given application.

It has also found application in architectural concrete because of its ability to create smooth surfaces free of honeycombing when used with high-quality formwork.

Applications of self-consolidating concrete also include columns and beams, pumped concrete, foundations, and other applications where a flowing concrete will be beneficial to concrete placement.

Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) or self-compacting concrete, as it’s sometimes known, arrived as a revolution in the field of concrete technology.
