Abstract: In recent years, many of the structures are in complicated Architectural design, it is very difficult to compact the concrete in congested reinforcement. Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a new kind of high performance concrete with excellent deformability and segregation resistance and that can flow through the gaps, corners and joints of reinforcement, without any vibrations or compaction. It was first developed in japan, 1986. But in our country usage of SCC is very less when compared with other countries like japan, European countries etc. Construction industry is facing a lot of problem with availability of natural resources. To overcome this, we need to go for alternative material in place of conventional aggregate. The attention for the environmental aspects moves the research towards recycling industrial by-products, as Fly ash and Copper slag. In this experimental study M60 grade of concrete is to be adopted. The cement and fine aggregate is partially replaced with fly ash and Copper slag respectively. Fly Ash will be replaced 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25% by weight of cement And Copper slag by weight of fine Aggregates in various percentages such as 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% .The Compressive strength, Flexural strength, Split tensile strength on hardened concrete with various replacements is to be investigated. Slump cone, V-funnel, L-box, J-box, T-50 will also be conducted.
