SCC was used to cast a complex shaped concrete pavilion, which was the final demonstration project in a Danish research project called “Unique Concrete Structures” ending in 2010. The casting was split in two parts. The first casting comprised the three supporting columns and the second one the capitals, rib structure and top plate. At the job site, the flow properties were measured with the 4C-Rheometer and approved before the castings were initiated. The project showed that relatively simple considerations of the challenges involved in the casting helped to ensure a positive outcome.
Key words: SCC, rheology, casting, complex shape.
