Proceedings pro115 : International RILEM Conference Materials Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering 2016 (MSSCE 2016) on Fresh Concrete
This volume contains the proceedings of the MSSCE 2016 conference segment on “Fresh concrete”. The conference segment is organized by the Danish Technological Institute and Ifsttar. Knowledge and understanding of the fresh concrete properties, the casting process and the development in early age properties of concrete can contribute to improved design, execution planning and quality control ultimately resulting in higher quality of the final concrete structure.
This segment deals with theory, modelling and results from experimental testing with relation to fresh and early age concrete. The topics covered include numerical simulations of mixing, casting and extrusion, mix design methods, quantification and assessment of constitutive material properties, mixing methods, rheology and thixotropy, early age modelling of concrete properties, non-destructive monitoring of fresh concrete, and assessment of value streams in precast castings. The conference segment is attended by persons from university, industry and practice representing different countries. The conference segment will serve as a platform for dissemination of state-of-the-art knowledge. Hopefully, it will contribute to synthesis of research on fresh concrete related topics and promote knowledge transfer from academia to practice. All contributions have been peer reviewed.
