Typically when you hear the words "SCC" (self consolidating concrete) you think cost, leaks and formwork pressure. To only be used in areas with too much congestion so there is no way around it, slab to beam walls or simply as a last resort. I feel SCC is one of the greatest resources out there for concrete construction! Yes, cost and form pressures are concerns, but you have to look at the possible benefits; time savings, manpower and astethetics. All of which can save you time and money.
Why I love SCC?
What do you think about pouring core walls with heavy congested steel at 3:00 PM on a Friday? Typically you're thinking, "WOW we're going to be here all night!"
