The research presented in this paper was motivated by two problems regarding the properties of fresh self-compacting concrete (SCC). The first problem is that mixture properties can vary owing to different factors (composition, materials, ambient, etc.) and the second problem is that there is usually a restricted group of experimental results. Because of the importance of the properties of fresh SCC mixtures, different tests for determining its passing and filling ability, as well as segregation resistance, have been developed. In this paper, results from V-funnel and slump flow tests conducted on seven different concrete mixtures are presented. As a correlation between the measurements of V-funnel period t(v) and the slump flow period t(500) is usually strong, in this paper, it was expanded using approximate-distance fuzzy least squares method. The goal was to perceive the possible range of these properties and, when applicable, to reduce the number of tests necessary during the produ...ction of SCC.
