Abstract: In the present paper the compositions, the performances and some practical applications of high-performance SCCs in Europe are shown. In particular, some performance improvements carried out in our laboratories are shown for these specific uses:
a) SCC for a building engineering application with white concrete characterized by a marble-like skin;
b) SCC in the form of high-strength concrete (HSC);
c) SCC for a mass concrete structure with a reduced risk of cracking induced by thermal difference between the nucleus and the skin of the elements;
d) SCC in the form of a lightweight precast concrete;
e) SCC in the form of a shrinkage-compensating concrete for reinforced concrete walls.
