Abstract

Concrete is most widely used in the construction industry and now-a-days Self compaction concrete is used because of its easy flow able properties and reduction in construction time. Self compacting concrete (SSC) is a basic type of concrete that does not required any kind of compaction or vibration. SCC was first developed by Okamura in Japan during the year 1980. This type of concrete flows easily around the reinforcement and into all corners of formwork and also it saves time, labor and energy. Different admixtures are used to produce effective self compacting concrete (SCC). The workability characteristics of SCC will be evaluated by the following tests like Slump Flow, V- Funnel, L-box Test. Many researches were carried out around the world with regards to different applications on properties and mix proportions. This paper includes the literature reviews related to behavior of self compacting concrete also deals with the strength and behavior of self compacting concrete using fibrous materials and mineral admixtures.
