Abstract: The propouse paper will present a study of the granulometric composition of the self compacting concretes, the influence of the cement content, the necessity of utilization of fine fractions of sand (30 to 200Ám) and filler (< 30Ám), and a correct proportion between sand and gravel. It will analyze the concrete in its fresh state, using test, already known, like L BOX, V-FUNNEL, SLUMP FLOW. In order to cover a greater field of options reduced models of this tests have been designed since the original models tests have big dimensions what it is translated in disadvanteges at the time of execute them. The utilizations of reduced models test allows to make laboratory research suffuciently extensive to determinate the dosages of the materials to apply in each case, solving the particular aspects and obtaining the greater advantages of the process.
