Abstract

This paper presents the study of the influence of particle size of fine aggregate on the filling ability and segregation resistance of Self - Compacting Concrete (SCC). The filling ability was assessed from the results of mortar spread diameter by mini truncated cone and the segregation resistance was assessed from the results of mini V-funnel flow time of mortar fraction of SCC as per EFNARC guidelines. 8 mixes of mortar fraction of SCC consists of two different cement replacement percentage (CRP) by fly ash are investigated for four different particle sizes of fine aggregate.
