Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) has gained significant attention in the construction industry due to its ability to flow and compact under its own weight, ensuring complete filling of formwork without the need for mechanical consolidation. This research focuses on enhancing the properties of SCC by incorporating fly ash and glass fiber. The study begins with a comprehensive literature review to understand the individual contributions of fly ash and glass fiber to concrete properties. Fly ash, a byproduct of coal combustion, is known for its pozzolanic characteristics, contributing to improved durability and reduced environmental impact. On the other hand, glass fibers, with their high tensile strength and enhance the mechanical properties of concrete. The experimental program involves the formulation of SCC mixes with varying percentages of fly ash and glass fiber. The key properties investigated include workability, compressive strength and split tensile strength. The fresh properties of SCC are evaluated using slump flow, U-box test, L-box test and V-funnel tests, while the mechanical properties are assessed through standard testing procedures. The results of the experiments are analyzed to determine the optimal combination of fly ash and glass fiber for achieving enhanced performance in SCC. The findings of this research contribute to the understanding of the synergistic effects of fly ash and glass fiber in self-compacting concrete, providing valuable insights for the construction industry to develop sustainable and durable concrete structures.
