Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a type of concrete that has the capacity to consolidate under its own weight. The current trend all over the world is to utilize the treated and untreated industrial by-products, domestic waste etc. as a raw material in concrete, which gives an eco-friendly edge to the concrete preparation process. This practice not only helps in reuse of the waste material but also creates a cleaner and greener environment. This study aims to focus on the possibility of using industrial by-products like Ground Granulated Blast furnace Slag (GGBS) and Silica fumes (SF) in preparation of SCC. The usage of these powders is proposed as a replacement for cement in the production of SCC by adopting the much popular Nan Su et al. method of mix design. The paper deals with comparison of performances of GGBS and SF based SCC mixes
