Abstract: During the last decades new cementitious materials were available. These represent a sort of technical revolution with respect to the traditional concretes. The most important innovative "High Tech" materials are Self-Compacting Concretes (SCCs).
In the present paper the compositions, the performances and some practical applications of high-performance SCCs are shown. In particular, some performance improvements carried out in our laboratories are evidenced for these specific uses:
a) SCC for a Building Engineering application (S. Peter Apostle Church in Pescara, Italy) with white concrete characterized by a marble-like skin;
b) SCC in form of high-strength concrete with compressive strength over 90 MPa devoted to a work in the field of Civil Engineering (World Trade Center in San Marino);
c) SCC in form of mass concrete structure with a reduced risk of cracking induced by thermal difference between the nucleus and the skin of the elements.
