Abstract: Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a special concrete, which is used to fill congested reinforcement without any vibration. This study mainly focused to know the result of mineral admixtures on self compacting concrete, which are prepared by partial replacement of cement and fine aggregate by mineral admixtures like copper slag, fly ash, silica fume etc.; called as industrial by-products. The objective of this paper is to know the behavior of the SCC, when it is in fresh and hardened states. Fresh and mechanical properties along with permeation characteristics have been discussed.
