Just as all concrete mixes should be carefully designed to achieve the required performance characteristics, properly placed and properly cured so should SCC.

A series of experiments are conducted using different SCC mixes to obtain the critical range of rheological parameters of yield stress and viscosity where segregation is minimized, yet the material retains its fluidity.
