Abstract: Self compacting concrete (SCC) is the new category of high performance concrete characterized by its ability to spread and self consolidate in the formwork exhibiting any significant separation of constituents. Elimination of vibration for compacting concrete during placing through the use of Self Compacting Concrete leads to substantial advantages related to better homogeneity, enhancement of working environment and improvement in the productivity by increasing the speed of construction. Understanding of this concrete flow property is of interest to many researchers. Flow properties of concrete at green stage are significantly governed by paste content, aggregate volume and admixture dosage. The flow properties of concrete is characterized in the fresh state by methods used for Self compacting concrete, such as slump-flow, V-funnel and L- box tests respectively. The number of trail mixtures are used and tests such as Slump Flow, V-Funnel, L-box etc. are conducted for their permissible limits, then the final proportions of ingredients and admixtures have been finalized for M30 , M 40 , M 50 and M 60 grade Concretes . In the present experimental investigation the main concentration is focused on permeability properties of self compacting concrete mixes.
