are two commonly known
methods of producing self compacting type concretes,
namely, the Powder and Admixture
Method uses superplasticisers in conjunction with very
material contents (i.e. cement, ﬂy ash, slag, etc) to form a paste
controls the homogeneity of the mix, improves its ﬂowability and holds
constituents together and resists segregation.
Method is based on the use of the new generation of
superplasticisers which offer the capability of providing for improved
ﬂowability, viscosity and cohesion, as well as workability retention.
on the characteristics of constituent materials, a viscosity modiﬁer
