-* **El-Caleyo simulation**+===== El-Caleyo simulation ​=====
  
-So called ​El-Caleyo ​wall is special formwork with holes and angles designed ​to test filling ability of self-compacting concrete ​(SCC)Geometry ​of the formwork is on the picture ​below. ​+==== Test Setup and Geometry ==== 
 +This example illustrates the casting simulation of real problem. The test has been designed by El-Caleyo. The purpose of this tests is to assess the filling ability of self compacting concrete ​in complex formworks with complex geometry, containing several holes and rather dense traditional reinforcementThe geometry ​of the formwork is illustrated in Fig.1.

 +==== Computational Model ==== 
 +Simulations were done for two different casting setups. In the first case, the SCC is pumped from the bottom of the specimen with prescribed constant input velocity. In the second case, SCC is casted from the top.

-Simulations were done in two different ways of casting. In the first case, SCC is casted from the bottom of the specimen with constant input velocity. In the second case, SCC is casted from the top as it is usual in real casting.
