Abstract: Self compacting concrete (SCC), a recent addition to the concrete scenario that is expected to lessen the problems associated with inadequate compaction at site. However a close look at what is proposed to be achieved and the methodology through which it is to be achieved closely indicates that the concept is nothing new. Specific requirements that need to be enforced for SCC are that the bleeding and segregation associated with highly flexible concretes be regulated through either inherent concrete making materials (paste phase) or through additional admixtures, which is incidentally true for even the conventional concretes. It is also known that the additional fines content and consequently even the marginally higher water content required for high fluidity will both lead to higher drying shrinkage and other affects. This paper discusses some of these aspects and attempts to suggest specific remedial measures based on the studies that reported in the literature and in the laboratory.
