Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a relatively new building material. Nowadays, its use is progressively changing the method of concrete placement on building sites.

However, the successful use of SCC requires a good understanding of the behavior of this material, which is vastly different from traditional concrete. For this purpose, a lot of research has been conducted on this area all over the world since 10 years.

Intended for both practitioners and scientists, this book provides research results from the rheological behavior of fresh concrete to durability.

About the authors/editors

Ahmed Loukili is Professor at Ecole Centrale de Nantes in France. His research interests include shrinkage, creep of concrete and durability of advanced cement materials.

In 2009, He received the research prize from National Federation of Public Works, rewarding 10 years of his research on development of new cementitious materials in civil engineering. He coordinated two national projects on development and behavior of Grenn concrete (2007-2010) and Analysis of Containment Reinforced Concrete Buildings (2010-2013).
