Application of Self-Consolidating Concrete in Bridge Structures

The objectives of this research were to evaluate the feasibility and performance of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) made with local aggregates for use in cast-in-place and precast concrete applications and to develop draft specifications, acceptance criteria, mix qualifications, and guidelines for use of SCC by SDDOT. Box culverts were designated as the first type of structures be constructed by SDDOT using SCC. A study was conducted at South Dakota State University to determine the feasibility of constructing precast and cast-in-place box culverts in South Dakota using SCC made with local aggregates. The research included literature search and review, development of SCC mix designs utilizing South Dakota local aggregates, aggregate testing, material testing of both fresh and hardened SCC properties, development of SCC special provisions in coordination with SDDOT staff and industry representatives, and evaluation of constructability of SCC box culverts.
