Slump flow diameter and time, and V-Funnel time tests were performed to look for the fresh properties.Mechanical properties such as compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were determined using cube specimen of 150mm, cylinder specimen of 150mm X 300mm and prism specimen of 100mm x 100mm X 500mm respectively.The addition of steel fiber enhanced the ductility significantly and the results indicated that high-volume of marble powder can be used to produce FRSCC, even though there is some decrease in the compressive strength because of the fiber geometry which affects the properties of SCC mixtures not only in the fresh state but also in the hardened state.

Self-compacting concrete: theoretical and experimental study.
Slump flow time and diameter, sieve stability, and L-Box were performed to assess the fresh properties of the SCC and FRSCC. Science and Engineering of Composite Materials, 15(2), 107-20. Use of viscosity-modifying admixture to enhance stability of fluid concrete. In this world of rapid urbanization the demand for natural construction materials is increasing day by day which has created a necessity for alternative construction materials.Recycling of materials is a possible way of eradicating the acute shortage of materials.The results obtained reveal that brick bats in combination with steel fibres may be used extensively in SCC.Self-compacting concrete as we all know is a concrete which exhibits good flow properties, good passing ability, and segregation resistance.
Self-compacting concrete has a high flowability that under its own weight without any vibration or impact fills all the parts and chinks of the formwork.
