Abstract

Presently, Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) emerges as a cutting-edge variant within the concrete landscape. This type of concrete opens a new horizon in construction industries, as the concrete may flow on its own weight and does not require external vibration for compaction. For this reason, it reduces the labor costs, energy, and time required for placement It has the capability to smoothly spread into the intricate spaces of the formwork and encompass the reinforcing elements without difficulty. Much research has been done on the fresh and hardened properties of SCC (Self-compacting concrete), but it has been found that, from the aspect of strength, SCC does not possess any significant values. This paper contains laboratory work on the high strength of SCC to see what significant changes have been achieved in the hardened properties of SCC using fly ash, GGBS, and silica fume. We aim to make M-40 concrete. Currently, we are trying to make high-strength SCC in our research laboratory by changing the aspect ratio of fly ash, GGBS, superplasticizer, etc., and seeing the different properties in the hardened state.

Keywords: SCC, GGBS, Superplasticizer, Silica Fume, Strength.
