    Abstract :

    Conventional concrete tends to present a problem with regard to adequate consolidation in thin sections or areas of congested reinforcement, which leads to a large volume of entrapped air voids and compromises the strength and durability of the concrete. Self-compacting concrete (SCC) can eliminate the problem, since it was designed to consolidate under its own mass. Normal concrete was designed by using IS method and self-compacting concrete was designed by a simple mix design proposed by Nan Su. SCC was developed in 1988’s by Prof. Hagime Okamura in Japan. SCC was one of the special concrete in across the world. This project deals with the comparison of two different types of high strength concretes they are high strength conventional concrete and high strength self-compacting concrete. An experimental and numerical study on mechanical properties, such as compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength of self-compacting concrete (SCC) and the corresponding properties of conventional concrete (CC) were studied. The age at loading of the concretes for 7,14 and 28 days curing.
