Aci self consolidating concrete
Lack of consolidation can cause voids, rock pockets, honeycombing, and poor bonding with the rebar.

They also filled test panels with a self-consolidating concrete (SCC).
In every case, walls filled with low-slump mixes had poor consolidation, regardless of the technique used.
In finding an effective solution for you, the principles below should provide general guidelines.
