Abstract
Self compacting concrete (SCC) is compacting itself alone due to its self-weight and is filled almost completely while flowing in the formwork. In structural members with high percentage of reinforcement ,it fills also completely all voids and gaps. The purpose of presented research is to investigate, the fresh properties of Steel Fiber SCC and the hardened properties. Fresh properties comprising flow ability, passing ability, and viscosity related segregation resistance. Hardened properties comprising compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, and Ultrasonic pulse velocity. The results indicated of the fresh properties of SCC with steel fiber , reduction in workability with increase of steel fiber content. Also the Steel fibers had effect on compressive & tensile strength , modulus of elasticity and ultrasonic pulse velocity of steel fiber self compacting concrete, there was an optimum content of steel fiber at which higher performance obtained at the both mentioned characteristics ,the content was(0.75- 1)% . All fiber mixes demonstrated higher splitting tensile strength, and flexural strength relative to plain mix at all curing ages. The strengths increased as the fiber content increased. The fibers slightly decrease the U.P.V followed the same behavior as in compressive strength of SCC.
