Self-Compacting Concrete for Prestressed Bridge Girders

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  10/17/2008


Self-compacting concrete offers significant cost benefits in precast girder construction, but performance testing and mix design standards were needed to enable use of SCC in Minnesota. Researchers evaluated wet-state performance of a range of mixes, and cast and instrumented four full-scale girders for laboratory performance testing. They also cast numerous cylinders to monitor physical characteristics and create performance models. They found SCC to be a suitable construction option.
