Dec 01, 2019  Concrete flowing-ability: should attain a spread diameter ranging from 450 mm to 750 mm. SCC is increasingly used in precast/prestressed industry, especially with HPC, due to the heavy reinforcement of I-girders cross section. High flowing ability is preferred to avoid the development of internal voids and honeycombs in the poured concrete section.

Apr 13, 2017  Prestressed concrete is even the material of choice for nuclear reactors and tension bridges. Talk about safe! When using prestressed concrete, fewer materials are required in the long run because the tension from the upward force of the steel bars disperses energy throughout the concrete mixture, allowing weight to be distributed evenly.

Prestressed concrete - Wikipedia

Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.: 3–5 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.
