Abstract

The self-consolidating concrete possess quality of achieving full compaction and flowing based on its own weight even in congested reinforcement. In this study, the self-consolidating concrete is investigated by its qualities. The material used in the study included fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, cement, superplasticizer, marble powder, and silica fume. There were 5 specimen beams used in the current study based on cement, silica fume, and marble powder combination. The test included slump flow test, V-funnel test, and L-box test. The results show that for the five samples, the 7 days’ compressive strength was about 29.94 on average; and for 28 days’ compressive strength, the strength was 41.65 on average. The results show that self-consolidate concrete has satisfactory qualities
