Nonlinear models get the rheologyof self-compacting concrete right

Three earlier articles in Concrete Plant International have described parts of the problem of determining the optimum composition of concretes,
and their solutions using nonlinear models. For self-compacting concrete, the same approach used in the previous article can be
applied. Rheology, however, is the key to good self-compacting concrete. This article, therefore, focuses primarily on obtaining desired flow
properties of self-compacting concrete.
