Abstract – Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a new kind of concrete that would not require vibration for placing and compaction. Self-Compacting Concrete is being extensively applied in many construction projects because of its excellent fresh and hardened properties. In this study M35 mix is used. Master Glenium Sky 8233 is used as the chemical admixture. The main aim of the project is to design the mix using fly ash as additive. Then sulphate attack and chloride attack of the specimens were determined. Different proportions of solution are used for durability study.
