Abstract: 
The effect of different types of superplasticizers on fresh properties and strength of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) was investigated. For this purpose, four mixtures containing different superplasticizer types were prepared. The admixtures had same main chain and same polymer structure but different molecular weight and different side chain density of carboxylic acid groups. The slump-flow, V-funnel, slump-flow loss and L-box tests of SCC mixture were determined. In addition, the compressive strength of SCC mixtures was determined at 1, 3, 7 and 28 day ages. Test results indicated that using the different types of superplasticizer affected the fresh properties of the SCC mixtures. It was observed that the compressive strength of SCC mixtures was also influenced slightly with the incorporation of different types of superplasticizers. The effect was more pronounced at early ages.
