Kinetics of Formwork Pressure Drop Of Self-Consolidating Concrete Containing Various Types and Contents of Binder

Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is a new type of high performance concrete characterized by its ability to flow under its own weight and achieve good consolidation without any mechanical vibration. This paper reports on the second phase of a comprehensive research program undertaken to evaluate the formwork lateral pressure developed by SCC mixtures made with various binder types and contents. This second phase determines the influence of binder type and content on the time necessary for lateral pressure cancellation and interpretes it with respect to concrete temperature rise. Standard setting times of the tested mixtures are evaluated and correlated to pressure cancellation.
