Abstract – Concrete are the most important materials used in construction industries where the external forces more than the design loads mainly the lateral forces which leads to the deformation and produce cracks in the joints of the structural member. The usage of cement has been increased more over the world results in the air pollution which leads to the ozone depletion. Self Compacting Concrete gets dense and compacted due to its own self-weight. The ingredients used for SCC are 53 grade Ordinary Portland Cement, Fine Aggregate, Coarse Aggregate, Super Plasticizer, Class-F Flyash from thermal power plant, Viscosity modifying agent.In the present experimental investigation the main concentration is focused on to study the basic properties of cement, flyash, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, super plasticizer and viscosity modifying agent. Then the mix design is carried out for M30 grade concrete of SCC by European method for various fiber proportions. And also fresh & hardened concrete properties such as slump flow, V-Funnel, L-box, U-box test carried out for self compacting concrete.
