Abstract: Over the last ten years, significant amount of work has been carried out on self-compacting concrete all over the world. The paper discusses the existing level of research concerning various aspects of self-compacting concrete; materials and mixture design, test methods, fresh and hardened concrete properties, durability properties. It also provides insight into the research being carried out to predict the performance of SCC mixtures using modelling techniques. The models developed can be used as economical tools to optimize design of SCC mixtures thereby reducing number of mix trials and can be used to generate future results using other materials.
