Environmentally-friendly self-compacting concrete

Mario Vujica, Marijan Skazlić

Abstract

An experimental analysis of properties of self-compacting concrete, for both fresh and hardened states of concrete, is presented in the paper. Concrete mixes differed according to the type and quantity of mineral admixtures (metakaolin, fly ash). It was established that the addition of fly ash and metakaolin greatly improves mechanical properties and durability of self-compacting concrete, and is favourable to environment due to reduction in CO2 emissions. Based on test results obtained, appropriate ecommendations for practical application are given.

Keywords
