Title
Modulus of elasticity and tensile strength of self-compacting concrete: Survey of experimental data and structural design codes
Author
Abstract
To enable an overall view on the mechanical performance of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC), a database was constructed. Included within this database are informations with regard to: mix-design, fresh and hardened properties. This dataset contains results of more than 250 papers, of researches conducted worldwide on SCC during the last two decades. In this paper, an in depth analyses is provided on the modulus of elasticity and the tensile strength of SCC. The SCC results collected within the database are compared with those predicted from the formulations and existing models developed and validated for vibrated concrete (e.g. Eurocode 2 and the Model Code (MC 90 and/or MC 2010)). The influences of different mix-design parameters (aggregate type, paste volume, etc.) on the E-modulus and the tensile strength are analysed, and a more detailed view on the performance of SCC, and the different models, is obtained.
