Properties of Normal and High-Strength self-Compacting Fibrous Concrete in Fresh and Hardened state


This paper studies the properties of normal and high strength self-compacting concrete in fresh and hardened state, six of self-compacting with normal and high strength concrete mixes were prepared with different percentage of fibers(0, 0.4%, and 0.8%) where used to find out the effect of the addition of steel fibers on the properties of self-compacting concrete in fresh state (Filling ability, Passing ability and Segregation resistance) and hardened state (compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, modulus of rupture, and modulus of elasticity) of concrete.The study shows that the Addition of steel fibers in self-compacting concrete enhances compressive strength, tensile strength, modulus of rupture and modulus of elasticity relative to self-compacting concrete cast without steel fibers for both type of self-compacting concrete strength (normal strength (NSCC) and high strength (HSCC)).
