Abstract: After trying filling an annular space without satisfactory results, with lack of filling, honey-combing, using several types of fluid concretes with maximum aggregate size (< 20 mm) and slump cone of 20 cm, the best solution to concrete the tunnel lining is proven to be a self compacting concrete. The ability of designed SCC designed is demonstrated in site, flowing a distance of 10 meters and passing through the little thickness of the formwork (an average of 86 mm), as also to maintain stability of the mixture and having a minimum slump loss
