Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is considered by many experts to be the greatest breakthrough in concrete technology for many decades due to the improved performance and working environment. It all started around 1988 at Tokyo University with Prof. Okamura and his students, among others Ozawa and Maekawa, as they established the basic description of SCC. Before that, several cases of application were known in which the concrete did not need external consolidation to obtain necessary compaction and could therefore be considered as SCC, without being defined as such.

From Japan the technology spread through Asia and came to Europe around 1993. The first RILEM Technical Committee on SCC (TC 174-SCC) chaired by Dr. Skarendahl, was established in 1997 and concluded its work with a state-of-the-art report published in 2000 (RILEM Report n° 23). In 1998 an international workshop on SCC was held in Kochi, Japan and was followed up with RILEM First International Symposium on SCC in Stockholm, Sweden in 1999. Only two years later, the Second International Symposium was held in Tokyo, Japan. RILEM established the second technical committee in the year 2000, TC 188-CSC: "Casting of Self-Compacting Concrete", with more emphasis on production aspects. The latest big step in the process has probably been taken in North-America where an insignificant amount of SCC was produced in the year 2000, but it presumably exceeded one million cubic meters in total by the end of 2002. The first North-American conference on SCC was held with a great success in 2002, chaired by Prof. Shah.

This third International Symposium on SCC is held in association with RILEM Technical Committee 188-CSC, with 108 contributions from 26 countries, presented in 10 sessions:

As can be seen in these proceedings, the way or approach of producing SCC is quite different in the various countries depending on traditions and materials available. We hope that this RILEM symposium will contribute to a better understanding of various ways of optimising the production and use of SCC in general, and in particular to recognize "where to find the answer".
