Prefabricated SCC elements of different shapes and sizes have been produced economically and successfully in plants and then brought to the job site for safe and speedy construction.Cast-in-place SCC was used in the construction of the inclined pylons of a cable-supported pedestrian bridge in Virginia.
Eliminating the need for concrete vibration reduces the noise level in the plants and at the construction sites, resulting in improved environmental and working conditions.
SCC cuts down on the labor needed and wear and tear on equipment and formwork because internal and external vibrators are not used.
The SCC workshop laid the groundwork for successful application for SCC in drilled shafts. The Innovative Bridge Research and Deployment (IBRD) Program is the successor to the Innovative Bridge Research and Construction (IBRC) Program.
For more information on the SCC workshop program, contact Antonio. The main objectives of the IBRD program are to promote, demonstrate, evaluate, and document the application of innovative designs, materials, and construction methods in the construction, repair, and rehabilitation of bridges and other highway structures.
For example, the Nevada DOT requested a workshop on SCC for an awarded project, which specified SCC for drilled shafts.
