Abstract: In this investigation an attempt is made to replace coarse aggregate partially or fully by recycled concrete waste aggregates and the fresh state properties of modified SCC (Self Compacting Concrete) was elaborated by conducting slump flow, V-funnel, L-Box and J-ring tests. The properties such as filling ability, passing ability, segregation, bleeding and stability of the modified SCC were determined by using the fresh state tests. The results of this experiment revealed that it is possible to modify SCC by partially or fully replacing the coarse aggregate by RCWA. The optimum mix also determined by varying RCWA and mineral admixture content in SCC.
