Achieving good surface characteristics requires thorough consolidation of the fresh concrete and thoroughly filled forms.
Fortunately, this also leads to a durable material because water, precipitation, and aggressive chemicals or ions are shed by the surface skin.
Conventional concrete is placed using vibrators to fill the forms.
Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is a big step forward in fool proofing that procedure.
The first paper on SCC was presented at the second East-Asia and Pacific Conference on Structural Engineering and Construction (EASEC-2) in 1989, followed by another presentation at an Energy Diversification Research Laboratories (CANMET)/American Concrete Institute (ACI) meeting in 1992.
