  • Abstract:
    This report focuses on the production of self-consolidating concrete using local materials from Las Vegas, Nevada. Tests were conducted on eight self-consolidating concrete mixtures having two different percentages of fly-ash replacement (25% and 35%) as well as the inclusion of the superplasticizer ADVA 195 and the viscosity modifying admixture V-MAR 3. The fresh properties tested were flowability, passing ability, and stability. Mechanical properties evaluated were compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, and the modulus of elasticity. The durability of specimens produced from the mixtures was tested for chloride ion resistance, sulfate resistance, and salt scaling. A key outcome of these tests for both fresh and hardened properties was that the mix design of self-consolidating concrete should be tailored according to the planned application (drilled shafts, precast products, repair concrete, etc.…). Another key outcome was the importance mix design to accommodate the hauling time while maintaining consistent fresh properties of self-consolidating concrete at the delivery site. Recommendations for applications for self-consolidating concrete include using additional parameters to assess the suitability of the mixture to the designated application such as (T50, Jring), especially in critical applications where complications occur. And while additional testing may become a burden on the overall operation, it can be performed in trial batches and selectively during delivery. Another recommendation is to further investigate the use of techniques to control bleeding in large volume self-consolidating concrete casts.
