    Abstract :

    The aim of present study is to evaluate the properties of Self compacting concrete using polyvinyl alcohol fibers with partial replacement of cement with fly ash. The fly ash used in this study is of class-C type. For this study M30 grade Self compacting concrete is prepared as per the EFNARC guidelines and workability, durability and mechanical properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were evaluated. Polyvinyl alcohol fibers are added at a constant rate of 0.125% by volume of concrete, Cement is replaced with Fly ash for replacement levels of 0%, 10%,20%, 30%, 40% and workability, durability properties and mechanical properties like compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength were evaluated for the age of 7 days, 28 days,56 days. Stress-strain relation of concrete with 0% and 30% Fly ash is observed and Modulus of Elasticity is calculated. The water- cement ratio adopted is 0.4.
