Abstract: An experimental program was performed to investigate self-consolidating concrete (SCC) mixes by altering the water/binder ratio and using different substitution rates of fly ash. In total, six mixes were evaluated. All mixtures were characterized using measures of segregation and flow. In addition, compressive strength and mold-finish were evaluated. The objective of the investigation is to develop a cost-effective, high performance SCC containing Class F fly ash, and to compare the experimental results with the predicted theoretical results. The results of this project should provide information that will help reduce the material cost of SCC, further sustainable development in the concrete industry, and contribute to the development and usage of SCC in the United States and the global community.
