self-compacting concrete, Viscosity Modifying Admixture
The growing use of concrete is special architectural configurations and closely spaced reinforcing bars have made it very important to produce concrete that ensures proper filling ability, good structural performance and adequate durability. Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is an innovative concrete that does not requires vibration for placing and compaction. It is able to flow under its own weight, completely filling formwork and achieving full compaction, even in the presence of congested reinforcement. Popularity of using self-compacting concrete (SCC) in concrete construction is increased in many countries, since SCC is effectively applied for improving durability of structures while reducing the need of skilled workers at the construction site. Nowadays, the use of different chemicals as an admixture to improve concrete or getting some new properties of concrete. But, there is increased use of alternative chemicals, which shows significant advantages. One of such admixture Viscosity Modifying Admixture (VMA) increases the viscosity of concrete in order to preventing segregation under the water.
