Abstract

Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a type of concrete that can flow under its own weight and completely fill the form work, without vibration effect, and at the same time cohesive enough to be handled without bleeding. It ensures proper filling and good structural performances of restricted areas and heavily reinforced structural members. SCC usually requires a large content of binder and chemical admixtures. This work outlines the preliminary results of a research project aimed at producing and comparing SCCs incorporating Fly ash (FA) and Rice husk ash (RHA)as supplementary cementing materials in terms of their properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength.
