10th International RILEM Symposium on Self-compacting Concrete & 5th International Symposium on Design, Performance and Use of Self-consolidating Concrete & 2nd International Workshop on Rheology and Pumping of Fresh Concrete

The 1st~9th International RILEM Symposium on Selfcompacting Concrete were held in Iceland (2003), USA (2005, 2008, 2010, 2016), Belgium (2007), France (2013) and Germany (2019), respectively. The 1st-5th Design, Performance and Use of Self-consolidating Concrete were held in China (2005, 2009, 2013, and 2018). Many worldleading experts have given state-of-the-art speeches on SCC. The objective of the 10th International RILEM Symposium on Self-compacting Concrete, the 5th International Symposium on Design, Performance and Use of Self-consolidating Concrete and the 2nd International Workshop on Rheology and Pumping of Fresh Concrete, is to bring researchers and practitioners together to exchange the new advances on the design, construction and manufacturing of SCC.

Topics on all aspects of SCC and rheology of cement-based materials will be considered.

Part 1: SCC

1. Raw Materials and Mix Design for SCC - Selection of ingredients,  Use of chemical admixtures & SCMs & fibers in SCC,  Mix design procedures

2. Workability of SCC - Rheology of SCC, Action mechanisms of chemical admixture & SCMs, New instruments and test methods

3. Properties of Hardened SCC - Development of mechanical properties, Visco-elastic properties, Durability

4. Structural Performance of SCC - Structural properties of SCC elements, Bond to reinforcement, Seismic resistance, Long-term properties of structural elements

5. Constructability and Applications of SCC - Production and QA/QC, Constructability and formwork pressure, Technical and economic evaluation, Case studies

Part 2: Rheology & Pumping

1. Rheological behavior of fresh concrete - Non-Newtonian behavior, Thixotropic behavior, Shear-thinning and shear-thickening behavior, Factors affecting rheology and its mechanisms

2. Measurements of rheological parameters - Oscillatory shearing test, Special testing techniques or setups

3. Numerical simulation of concrete flow - Numerical simulation tools, Simulation techniques, Simulation of concrete flow in different circumstances

4. Rheology & Pumpability - Rheology, tribology and pumpability, Prediction of pumping, Full-scale pumping test, Pumping techniques

5. Rheology & 3D printing - Rheology and shape holding capacity, Rheology and multi-layer casting bonding, 3D printing concrete equipment and techniques
