Självkompakterande betong: Kvalitetspåverkande faktorer inom anläggningsbranschen

Abstract [sv]

Self-compacting concrete is still considered a relatively new product in the construction industry. This type of concrete is rarely used within cast in place concrete. The industry is rather conservative towards new technology and few are willing to take the economic consequences if the casting fails.

During the years self-compacting concrete has been used in Sweden, many failures occurred which has led to a fear of using the product. Manufactures and contractors have not understood how sensitive the concrete is and that you have to be very careful during manufacture and handling.

The aim with this work was to find out what makes self-compacting concrete a sensitive product and what affects it.

Self-compacting concrete is at the limit towards separation which requires great care during manufacture and casting. Even at very small changes of the available amount of water the concrete’s flowing properties, distribution and stability can be affected relatively strongly.

The quality of the fresh concrete has large impact on the final results. As the mixing operator it is important to get the right information and be careful during production. The transport affects the concrete consistency but how much we do not know at present. Since several factors such as air temperature, humidity and wind conditions vary constantly it is hard to determine the impact of the transport alone.

It is important to create experience of handling of self compacting concrete in order to solve the problems and to change the setting within the industry to self-compacting concrete.
