Numerical simulation of self-compacting concrete (SCC) flow shows great potential for developing into a powerful tool for prediction of SCC form filling. Numerical simulation is also of interest for modelling small scale material phenomena. This paper presents three different applications useful for modelling different phenomena on different scales: (i) particles, each representing an aggregate in the concrete, (ii) fluid, modelling concrete as a homogeneous liquid and (iii) particle in fluid, studying details of flow. The methods are compared and evaluated in order to give the reader a quick guidance into the world of possibilities that open up with numerical simulation.
