SELF COMPACTION HIGH PERFORMANCE GREEN CONCRETE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) as the name implies that the concrete requiring a very little or no vibration to fill the form homogeneously. SCC is defined by two primary properties: Ability to flow or deform under its own weight and the ability to remain homogeneous while doing so. A sustainable industrial growth will influence the cement and concrete industry in many respects as the construction industry has environmental impact due to high consumption of energy and other resources. One important issue is the use of environmental-friendly concrete (“green concrete”) to enable worldwide infrastructure growth without affecting the environment . The potential environmental benefit to society of being able to build with green concrete is huge. Suitable environmental cost of producing concrete into the current price by adjusting the price of environment resources to elevate concrete’s price, which will be helpful for protection of the environment and will promote the advancement of concrete technology. The problems of sustainable development should be considered on the societyeconomy- technology level. Fresh properties and basic strength characteristics, such as compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, with crusher rock and marble slurry dusts are the main focuses in this research.
