Self Compacting Concrete (SCC), Fly Ash (FA), Rheology, Compressive and Splitting Tensile Strength


SCC is a high performance concrete that can flow under its own weight to completely fill the form work and self-consolidates without any mechanical vibration. Such concrete can accelerate the placement, reduce the labor requirements needed for consolidation, finishing and eliminate environmental pollution. The process of selecting suitable ingredients of concrete and determining their relative amounts with an objective of producing a concrete of required strength, durability and workability as economically as possible is termed as concrete mix design. The experimental procedure consists of fixing the optimum mix for SCC taking into account the criteria for SCC and design mix calculated as per Nan Su method. The mix ratio obtained from Nan Su method is made to satisfy the EFNARC Guidelines by trial mix method. Further the cement is replaced in the range of 5- 30% with an interval of 5% by FA for the optimum mix and finally fresh and hardened properties of developed mixes have been studied.
