    Abstract :

    Self-Compacting concrete (SCC) is a high-performance concrete that can flow under its own weight to completely fill the form work and self-consolidates without any mechanical vibration. Such concretes are an accelerate for the placement, to reduce the labour requirements needed for consolidation, finishing and eliminate environmental pollution. This will ensure that the concrete obtained has good flowability, self-compacting ability and other desired SCC properties. The European Federation of Producers and Applicators of Specialist Products for Structures (EFNARC) [2005] have also laid down certain guidelines for fresh properties of SCC. Which can placed and compacted in to every corner of a formwork; purely means of its self-weight by eliminating the need of either external energy input from vibrators or any type of compacting effort. There is a current trend in all over the world to utilize the treated and untreated industrial by- products, domestic wastes etc. as raw materials in concrete. These not only help in reduce of the waste materials but also create a cleaner and greener environment.In this study the main aim is to focus on the possibility of using industrial by product as a waste material in a preparation of innovative concrete. One kind of waste was identified as Glass Powder (GP) and another one is fly ash. The use of this waste (GP) and fly ash was proposed in different percentage as an instead of cement for production of self-compacting concrete. The experimental work deals with the ingredient of these mixtures (Glass powder, fly ash, super plasticizer, and cement) to improve the strength by examining their specific role in self-compacting concrete.
