The issue of durability
The potential for improved durability was one of the factors that led to the development of SCC. The densified microstructure and the improved consolidation of
SCC can result in better durability. The pore structure
of the bulk paste and the interfacial transition zone
characteristics of SCC are often improved due to the relatively low water to binder ratios. The significantly improved stability, reduction in bleeding and elimination of vibration can lead to a denser interfacial transition zone and hence to better durability. The durability aspects of SCC have recently...
