In this paper the mechanical properties of SCC in comparison to conventional concrete are discussed.

Examples of applications are shown, both for prefabricated concrete elements and in- situ structures.

The three bar test simulates more congested reinforcement [13-15].

The main concept of this test is to allow a measured volume of fresh concrete to flow horizontally through the gaps between vertical, smooth reinforcing bars and the height of the concrete beyond the reinforcement is measured.

It has been observed that performance wise SCC is more capable than conventional concrete because of its fluidity.
