Abstract

This paper presents a proposal for shaping the properties of green self-compacting concrete, mostly focussing on minimising the amount of clinker in concrete and obtaining lower hardening temperatures. The main application of this SCC would be in constructions build during summer, as well as in massive and semi-massive structures. In these kinds of constructions, thermal effects connected with cement hydration are of particular importance. The difference in temperature between the interior and the relatively fast cooling exterior of the concrete element leads to thermal stress. In extreme conditions, this can cause cracking within the entire bulk of concrete element, leading to a lowering of its durability and longevity.
