Abstract

Flowable concrete is a very effective and suitable construction material, especially for structures with congested reinforcement. The flowability and workability are influenced by the field variation of the surface water in the fine aggregate, and by variations in transportation and pumping. The use of FC can also be expanded to prestressed concrete structures because high compressive strength is easily attainable.
