Abstract: The development of Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a progressive milestone in the historical backdrop of real estate and construction industry bringing about transcendent use of SCC overall these days .In this study, the effects on the mechanical properties of the Self-compacting concrete (SCC) with partial replacement of cement by grinded fiber were studied, a mixture of equal proportion of grinded glass and basalt fiber of length 6mm was used. The volume fraction of the grinded glass and basalt mixture taken are 0%, 0.15%, 0.30%, 0.45% and 0.60% by weight of cement. In order to better understand the effect of the grinded fibers on the mechanical properties of SCC, cubes and cylinders were casted and tested for compressive strength, split tensile strength and flexural strength. For each test, data was collected and then compared with target (0%) fiber specimen. The study showed remarkable improvements in all properties of self-compacting concrete such as a compressive strength as well as enhanced durability.
