Self-Consolidating Concrete: The Benefits and Consequences

Exhibit at the largest infrastructure event in MENA


Returning as part of The Big 5 – the Middle East’s largest event for the building and construction industry, Middle East Concrete will run from 26 - 29 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The concrete event has been re-introduced alongside The Big 5 as a growing construction sector puts pressure on the region to deliver projects more efficiently and in shorter time frames.

The four-day exhibition will put your products and services directly in front of more than 20,000 structural and civil engineers, plant managers, architects, consultants and contractors from across the GCC.

26 - 29 November 2018  |  Za'abeel Hall 1 | Dubai World Trade Centre  

Full exhibitor list will be live at the end of August 2018

The ease of use of Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is a function of the properties of the concrete as a fluid. In order to understand how to apply the material and what it can and cannot do an understanding of the basics of fluid mechanics is required. The presentation will look at the use of SCC in architectural, structural and horizontal slabs from the specifier, contractor and installer viewpoints. Practical examples will be combined with theoretical developments to show the theory and its applications.

The benefits and consequences of using the high fines and the molecular entanglement methods of mixture design will be detailed.  The use of ASTM tests to quantify the properties of the concrete will be combined with specification examples to provide clear actions to be taken to successfully implement SCC in design and construction.
