This book attempts to bring together some of the basic intricacies in the production of the complete range of self-consolidating cementitious composites, with a proper understanding of the contributions of different materials and their combinations, including performance and limitations.
Presents a comprehensive perspective of the state of the art in self-compacting concretes while explaining the basic background and principles, includes possible alternatives of making SCC with different powder extenders and pozzolanic materials
Explores concepts through theoretical and graphical representations

Prof. Ganesh Babu Kodeboyina, after obtaining his bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering with Distinction from the Andhra University, joined IIT Madras for his Masters in Structural engineering. He then continued in IIT Madras and obtained his doctoral degree working in the area of behaviour of Partially Prestressed Concrete structural members. He then joined as a Scientist in the Structural Engineering Research Centre and was involved in several projects like Large Diameter Prestressed Concrete Pipes, Ferro cement, Fiber Reinforced Concrete apart from being the principal investigator on the UNDP sponsored project on Polymer Concrete Composites.
