Abstract: The cost of supplying self-compacting concrete (SCC) could be more than double to that of conventional concrete. In order to reduce this cost, it may be possible to cast structural elements in layers of SCC and conventional concrete. This paper introduces a 'sandwich' concept of layered construction and examines its possibility by addressing the issue of compatibility between mixtures of different rheological properties, focusing mainly on their interfacial zone during placement and the resultant strength of the composites. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
