Abstract

Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) has more attention because of its ability to compact without the need of internal or external vibration. The placing of normal conventional concrete is difficult in reinforcement confinement places and also the strength of the concrete is low when it is subjected to severe exposure condition. In order to overcome these effects, the admixtures were used in the concrete to increase the strength and durable properties of the concrete. Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is one of the concrete which makes use of admixture to increase the flowability of the concrete without any additional vibration. As the concrete is flowable, it has good workability. SCC has more workability and by the addition of mineral admixtures like fly ash and silica fume, the concrete will attain more strong and durable, so that the concrete will behave as Self Compacting High-Performance Concrete (SCHPC).The aim of the study is to determine the flexural behavior of the self-compacting high-performance concrete. In this present work, the various literature related to SCC with different mineral admixtures was studied and the best among them was chosen for the future work
