Simulation and Verification of Form Filling with Self-Compacting Concrete

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch


This paper presents a form filling experiment and the corresponding 3D simulation. One side of the form is made of a transparent acrylic plate and to improve the visual observations of the flow behaviour, the first and second half of the form is cast with normal grey and red-pigmented SCC, respectively. Simulations are based on a FEM formulation of the Navier- Stokes equations and a Bingham model has been applied. Results show that the simulation corresponds to the behaviour observed in the experiment.
