Report D: Self‐Consolidating Concrete (SCC) for Infrastructure Elements: Creep, Shrinkage and Abrasion Resistance

Concrete specimens were fabricated for shrinkage, creep, and abrasion resistance testing. Variations of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) and conventional concrete were all tested. The results were compared to previous similar testing programs and used to determine the adequacy of the materials for use in practice. The testing program consisted of normal strength (6000 psi) and high strength (10,000 psi) variations of SCC and conventional concrete. All specimens were tested for compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, shrinkage strain, creep strain, and abrasion resistance. All tests were performed according to their respective ASTM standard methods. In general, SCC performed well relative to conventional concrete at high strengths, but not as well at normal strengths for shrinkage and creep.
