Abstract

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is an innovative concrete that does not require vibration for placing and compaction. It is able to flow under its own weight, completely filling formwork and achieving full compaction, even in the presence of congested reinforcement. The hardened concrete is dense, homogeneous and has the same engineering properties and durability as traditional vibrated concrete. Due to industrialization there is a huge quantity of red mud created. Red clay is an industrial waste, causing threat to environment. This paper based on experimentation describes the use of Red Mud for construction work, through modified Self Compacting Concrete. Some percentage of cement has been replaced by Red Mud in the concrete. Motive behind this study was to more use of industrial waste and tackle the problem of environmental pollution due to dumping of Red Mud.
