Self-compacting concrete is a concrete mixture that is able to consolidate under its own weight. The highly fluid nature of it makes suitable for placing in difficult conditions and congested reinforcement. Use of it can also help minimize hearing-related damages on the worksite that are induced by vibration of concrete. Another advantage of Self-compacting concrete is that the time required to place large sections is considerably reduced. Self-consolidating concrete is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete. It can be used casting heavily reinforced sections. The required level of fluidity is greatly influenced by the particular application under consideration. Obviously the most congested structural members demand the highest fluidity.
