Abstract : pThe study of self-compacting concrete (SCC) denotes a field of exploration that shows a strong possibility of development due to its specific properties. The cost related with the utilization of vast volumes of concrete and synthetic admixtures is one of the significant disadvantages of SCC which can be redressed by the utilization of supplementary cementitious materials (SCM). Experimental investigation on the fresh and mechanical properties of SCC replacing cement with SCM such as silica fume and ultra-fine GGBS in 0%, 5%, 10% and 15% individually is carried out in this paper. SCC mix was obtained by fixing the water binder ratio and changing super plasticizer dosage with respect to total cementitious content. Incorporation of silica fume in 10% gave the best result in mechanical properties than any other combination with or without SCM. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd./p
