Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is one of the most significant advances in concrete technology in the last decades. SCC was mainly developed to ensure adequate compaction through self compaction and facilitate placement of concrete in structures with congested reinforcement and in restricted areas. SCC is a very fluid concrete and a homogenous mixture that solves most of the problems related to ordinary concrete. SCC gets compacted under its own weight and there is no need for an internal vibration for the body of the mould. An experimental investigation is carried out to study the properties of SCC, by partially replacing cement with certain percentage of Fly ash and Silica fume. Further, Workability, Mechanical & Durability properties are studied on these SCC mix proportions. This paper presents the behaviour assessment of these SCC, and this shows promise as a greener substitute for Ordinary Portland Cement in some applications.
