Workshop 1024

Use of Self-Consolidating Concrete in Bridge Applications

Sunday, January 12, 2020      9:00 AM- 12:00 PM
Convention Center, 202A
Anton K. Schindler, Auburn University,
Kamal Khayat, Missouri University of Science and Technology
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Basic Research and Emerging Technologies Related to Concrete (AFN10)
Standing Committee on Concrete Bridges (AFF30)

Standing Committee on Concrete Materials and Placement Techniques (AFN40)
Standing Committee on Properties of Concrete (AFN20)

Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is a highly flowable, nonsegregating concrete that is placed without any mechanical consolidation. SCC can fill heavily congested or irregularly shaped members more easily than conventional-slump concrete while providing improved in-place quality and superior surface finish. The use of SCC also may decrease construction costs because of reduced labor requirements during construction. This workshop will cover the following SCC-related topics: 1) mixture proportioning, 2) fresh properties, 3) mechanical properties, 4) time-dependent deformations, 5) construction aspects, 6) flexural and shear behavior, 7) bond behavior, 8) prestress losses, and 9) the structural behavior of real-world elements made with SCC.

9:00 to   9:05 am: Workshop Start and Overview (Dr. Anton Schindler, Auburn University)

9:05 to   9:35 am: Introduction, Fresh Properties, and Testing of SCC (Dr. Kamal Khayat, Missouri University of Science and Technology)

9:35 to 10:05 am: Hardened Properties of SCC (Dr. George Morcous, University of Nebraska–Lincoln)

10:05 to 10:35 am: Contractor’s Perspective on Using SCC in Bridge Projects (Oscar Antommattei, Kiewit Engineering Group)

10:35 to 11:05 am: Performance of SCC in Prestressed Girder Applications (Dr. Sam Keske, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc.)

11:05 to 11:35 am: SCC Implementation in Real-world DOT Projects (Dr. Celik Ozyildirim, Virginia Transportation Research Council)

11:35 to 12:00 pm: Question and Answer Session (All Speakers)
