AbstractThis research examined the structural performance of self-consolidating concrete used in confined concrete columns. The paper compares the mechanical performance of highly-confined columns cast with normal concrete vibrated into place to ensure proper filling and consolidation equivalent to that of identical columns cast with self-consolidating concrete.Sixteen columns were tested: 11 were normal or self-consolidating concrete in reinforced sections; 5 accompanying columns were cast without reinforcement. The tested columns had nominal concrete compressive strengths of 40 to 80 Mpa and used two confining stirrup configurations representing different degrees of confinement.
