Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the suitability of different kind of fillers to be used for producing self-compacting concretes. The influence of filler on the properties of SCC was investigated both in fresh and hardened state. A total of eight different self compacting concretes and two conventional concretes were produced. The hardened properties measured were the compressive strength and the static modulus of elasticity and the splitting tensile at strength different ages. Self-compacting concretes developed equal or better compressive and splitting tensile strength than conventional concretes of the same strength class. Modulus of elasticity was slightly reduced on all self-compacting mixtures.
Among the fine materials used limestone filler performed the best on increasing the mechanical characteristics of self-compacting concretes whereas glass filler had the better performance mainly on the fresh properties of the mixtures.
