The ASTM C1621 J-Ring test, together with the C1611 Slump-Flow test, determine the passing ability of SCC, defined as the ability of the concrete to flow under its own weight to completely fill all spaces within the formwork.The L-Box offers an alternate method of determining flow, and is currently in use in Europe and some DOT’s in the United States.

He also talks about using concrete as a building material, covering compression versus tension and sharing strategies for managing cracking.

Honeycombing or exposed reinforcement in structural walls or columns is a constant concern in these structures.

Achieving good surface characteristics requires thorough consolidation of the fresh concrete and thoroughly filled forms.

Fortunately, this also leads to a durable material because water, precipitation, and aggressive chemicals or ions are shed by the surface skin.

The first paper on SCC was presented at the second East-Asia and Pacific Conference on Structural Engineering and Construction (EASEC-2) in 1989, followed by another presentation at an Energy Diversification Research Laboratories (CANMET)/American Concrete Institute (ACI) meeting in 1992.
