Self Compacting Concrete is the type of concrete which does not require vibration at the time of placing and compaction, also it is having the capacity to flow in congested reinforcement under it’s own weight.[5] The idea behind development of Self Compacting concrete is to get higher strength and to decrease the problem of compaction.[18] Recycled aggregates have the added benefit of reducing landfill disposal, by conserving primary natural resources and reducing transportation costs, help to promote sustainable development in the protection of natural resources.[5] The use of recycled concrete aggregates from demolition waste and rubble in combination with cementitious additions in concrete has various advantages. From various literature it has been observed that Self Compacting Concrete(SCC) with recycled aggregate meet EFNARC guidelines for fresh properties of concrete and with increase in content of recycled aggregate hardened properties like compressive strength, tensile strength and flexural strength decreases.
