Prediction of flow induced inhomogeneities in self compacting concrete

Project Details


The main objective of the project is to improve the basic understanding of the flow behaviour of SCC. The research will produce tools allowing for the prediction of the casting process itself (formwork filling and formwork pressure) along with the prediction of the occurrence of hidden defects such as heterogeneities and weak interfaces. The project will result in a modelling framework for numerical simulation of full scale casting of SCC. The framework will be established through a cross disciplinary collaboration.
