Abstract: Self-compacting concrete is gaining importance in recent years due to its highest versatility in replacing compacting equipment and there by reducing the constructional flaws. The only limitation of SCC of compromising with strength has been challenged by the addition of steel fibers in this paper. In this research work two types of steel fibers such as crimped type and hook end type are utilized in various proportions such as 0.4%,0.8%, 1.0% and 1.25%. SCC mandatory tests such as Flowing ability, filling ability and passing ability were determined and then the mechanical properties such as compressive strength and split tensile strength have been determined. Results show the unique variation with reference to the different type of fiber and different volume of fiber. This unleashes a lot of scope in the field of Fiber reinforced Self compacting concrete
Keywords: Fibre Reinforced SCC, Self Compacting Concrete Steel Fibre.
