abstract
Whereas rheology, pumpability, durability, etc. of self-compacting concrete (SCC) have been investigated for more than 20 years now, the mechanical properties received less attention. The past few years, this aspect is getting more and more attention. However, one of the problems encountered when comparing different studies is the use of different specimen sizes all over the world. For vibrated concrete (VC), conversion factors are defined to convert the obtained compressive strength on one specimen type to another. It has been questioned whether these factors are applicable to SCC. Therefore in this study an extensive research project was carried out to determine the shape factors of powder-type self-compacting concretes. A total of two VC and ten SCC mixture designs were selected varying in cement type, cement content, water-to-cement ratio and water-to-powder ratio. Beside cubes with sides of 100 mm, 150 mm and 200 mm, cylinders with a diameter of 100 mm and diameter 150 mm were cast and cores with a diameter of 100 mm, 80 mm and 50 mm were drilled. The experimental results are compared to existing formulas and tabulated values. The influence of the fraction of powder, the cement/powder-ratio and the water/cement-ratio seems to be insignificant. A significant difference between shape-factors of self-compacting concrete and shape factors of vibrated concrete has not been found.
