Abstract: SCC is a concrete which has the ability to flow like liquid. This flowability of concrete is achieved by limiting the size of coarse aggregate content. Also 20% of the coarse aggregate is replaced by utilizing flyash inorder to increase the percentage of powder content..And due to the scarcity and unavailability of sand, an alternate is choosen to measure the rate of workability of SCC using quarry rock dust. The main property and strength of SCC depends on its workability Hence workability tests and its relative compressive strength have been conducted to measure SCC specimens with fine aggregate and quarry rock dust. Fluidity of the paste can be improved by increasing the content of water-powder ratio and by adding super plasticizers. Segregation and blockages can be avoided by reducing the coarse aggregate content. A viscosity modifying agent (VMA) helps to reduce the changes in concrete properties. Thus, relative proportions of ingredients need to be carefully determined to impart self leveling and self compacting properties to SCC in the fresh stage. Thus SCC specimens have been casted with quarry rock dust and fine aggregate using three different bases of superplasticizers(HRWRA) such as polycarboxyl, naphthalene and melamine bases and VMA. And its workability and strength properties have been evaluated by conducting different tests.
