SCC is nowadays a worldwide used construction material. However, heterogeneities induced by casting may lead to variations of local properties and hence to a potential decrease of the structure’s load carrying capacity. The heterogeneities in SCC are primarily caused by static and dynamic segregation. The present paper reports property maps for a beam based on particle distributions at the end of casting derived from numerical flow simulations. A finite volume based numerical model is used to predict particle distributions at the end of casting, which are then converted into property maps using semi-empirical relations from literature.
