Abstract: Self-compacting concrete is a complex mixture containing different constituents; with interaction between them causing wide variations in workability. Determining workability in terms of rheological parameters at site is not always an option. The objective of this research is to develop a model to predict the workability of SCC by predicting the rheological properties (yield stress and plastic viscosity) of SCC from properties of its mix constituents. The study is focused firstly on developing the rheological model on paste fraction of SCC. Secondly, the rheology study extends from paste to mortar and then to concrete. Key factors affecting the rheology from paste to concrete are determined experimentally. These include basic parameters such as particle concentration, size distribution, particle geometrical shape and degree of cement particle flocculation. The interdependency between mix constituents and rheological parameters is presented as analytical models with the unknown factors in the relationship determined from the experimental data.
