Test Setup and Geometry
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.
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.
Casting from the bottom
Example of input file for the “bottom casting” is here: elcaleyo.oofem.in
On the next picture, scheme of “bottom casting” is shown. There is is prescribed velocity at the bottom edge.
Casting from the top
Example of input file for the “casting from the top” is here:elcaleyo_top_oofem.in
On the next picture, casting scheme is shown. SCC is initially at the reservoir above the wall.
