Sustainabile Urban Development, Architecture and Environment

Description

Concrete is a material which has wide usage in engineering especially in construction engineering and road infrastructure facilities. Development trends for high rise constructions, modern skyscrapers indicate that building such constructions with normal concretes and low consistency is impossible, therefore there is a need for concrete with high processes because of great amount of steel in cross section of concrete elements, solution for such construction is self-compacted concrete because of ability to fill pores without compaction and vibration. Considering this fact, researches for deflections, mechanical characteristics of concrete and deformations have been conducted worldwide. In this line, we conducted an experimental research to determine the deflections on beams of selfcompacted concrete and compared it with conventional concrete. The experimentally-obtained results will be presented for both types of concrete for: module of elasticity and deflections tests for duration testing time t=40 days.

Keywords:

Self-Compacting Concrete, Conventional Concrete, deflections, deformations, modulus of elasticity

Experimental Comparison of Deflection Results for Beams of Self-Compacted Concrete (SCC) and Conventional Concrete Period t=40 Days
