- * **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

-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.+==== 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.
