The plain cement concrete has brittle in nature and low tensile strength. Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is an efficient choice in construction because of its inherent capacity to fill gaps and flow without the need for external vibration. The necessity of self-compacting concrete can be recognized by seeing the growing issue of a trained labour shortage in the building sector. The advantage of SCC is that it allows for an earlier development of concrete strength and shortens the construction period. The flexure and flow properties of self-compacting concrete reinforced with AR Glass fibre are examined in the current paper. Concrete was combined with four various percentages of AR Glass Fibre (0.25percent, 0.5percent, 0.75percent and 1percent). To understand the mechanical attributes of different specimens of self-compacting concrete made from different types of fibre, At 7 and 28 days, compressive strength, split tensile strength, and flexure strength are assessed. Slump flow, L-Box, U-Box, T50cm tests also acted upon the analyze the flow of self-compacting concrete. As the amount of fibre increases, more super plasticizer was needed. Based on the calculation of maximum strengths for ARGFSCC will give the best strengths and the optimal fibre mix will be in the range of 1% by volume.
