Abstract: This paper focuses on where and how SCC was used in Norway up to the end of 2001. A typical feature of SCC in Norway is that it nearly all contains condensed silica fume (CSF). Some examples of how CSF has been used to improve the properties of SCC are given in this paper. Five concrete admixture suppliers have reported deliveries og co-polymers for SCC. The norwegian Ready-Mixed Concrete Association have reported the volume of produced SCC in 2001. By the end of the year there were 40 concrete plants producing SCC more or less permanently, and about 80 concrete plants had tried to produce SCC out of a total about 170 concrete plants. Five precast plants used SCC when it was financially beneficial. The volume of SCC has increased from 1996. In year 2000 the volume was 12.000 m3 and in year 2001 the volume passed 33.000 m3
