Form Pressures Generated by Self-Consolidating Concrete

Since its development, it has been generally assumed that self-consolidating concrete (SCC) would generate hydrostatic formwork pressure due to the rate at which it can be cast and the long time before it starts to set. However, in 1998 when the first bridges were cast using SCC in Sweden, measured form pressures were even lower than the design values for conventional concrete. To investigate the need for special formwork design considerations when using SCC, a series of eight wall specimens were cast, and the resulting form pressures were monitored.
