Abstract

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) possesses enhanced qualities and improves productivity and working conditions due to elimination of compaction. SCC is suitable for placing in structures with congested reinforcement without vibration and it helps in achieving higher quality of surface finishes. Development of SCC required a balance between the flow ability and the stability of the concrete mix. While, achieving good consolidation in the absence of vibration and satisfying the requirement of concrete is affected by the characteristics of materials and the mix proportions. Due to this limitation we are trying to make self-compacting concrete with the use of mineral admixture (Glenium Sky) as a super plasticizers. The primary objective of this study is to make use of Glenium Sky as chemical admixture and understand its effects on the fresh properties, compressive strength weathering. The study also intended to increase a workability of concrete.
