Self-Compacting concrete (SCC) is defined as a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete mix that can be placed even in the most congested reinforcement by means of its own weight, with little or no vibrations. With the increasing use of marble stones, the waste marble powder (WMP) is also increasing in the same way. As per the experiment, about 45% of the marble block will be wasted during its cutting in the form of powder. As we all know, the waste marble powder decreases the fertility of the soil and also pollute the environment. Therefore, as a solution for these problems and also to get some benefits from the wastage materials; we tried replacing the fine aggregates with waste marble powder (WMP). The fine aggregate is being replaced by the powder`s slurry in the form of marble powder. By the use of this waste marble powder in the concrete, we can increase or change various properties of the concrete mix; also the concrete can be used as self compacting concrete.
