Self-compacting concrete was first developed
in 1988 to achieve durable concrete structures. Since then, various investigations
have been carried out and this type of concrete has been used in practical structures
in Japan, mainly by large construction companies. Investigations for establishing
a rational mix-design method and self-compactability testing methods have been carried
out from the viewpoint of making self-compacting concrete a standard concrete.
