Abstract: In this study self-Compacting-Concrete containing steel fiber offer improvements on strength parameters of self-compacting concrete for M-30 grade of concrete using steel fiber. The main objective of this project has to find the effect of steel fiber on fresh and harden properties of Non-conventional self-compacting concrete. The use of fibers extends its potentialities since fibers arrest cracks and retard their propagation. In this investigation Mix proportion of concrete was 1:1.67:1.31 and maintaining water-cement ratio of 0.6 in order to find harden properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) containing fibers of 1%, by volume of cement. The flexural and split tensile strength of becomes higher compared with the conventional concrete. The non-conventional SCC with demolished aggregate is less costly than the conventional concrete.
Keywords: Conventional concrete, demolished aggregate, segregation, self compacting concrete, steel fiber.
