    Abstract

    This article presents the current status of research, development and application of selfcompacting concrete (SCC) in Greece. Although the use of SCC in civil engineering structures is slowly but steadily gaining ground in Northem Europe, it has not yet found its way to the Greek market. It was the aim of the study presented herein to explore the efficiency of different mix designs that make use of local constituent materials and to optirnize their relative proportions in regard to construction conditions applicable in the European South. Limestone powder was chosen as the most appropriate filler and a single chemica! compound combining the actions of both a viscosity modifying agent and a superplasticizer was used. Based on a realistic cost evaluation of the proposed mix design it is concluded that SCC holds promising perspectives for the Greek concrete industry.
