The State-of-the-Art Report of RILEM Technical Committee 228-MPS on Mechanical properties of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) summarizes an extensive body of information related to mechanical properties and mechanical behaviour of SCC. Due attention is given to the fact that the composition of SCC varies significantly. A wide range of mechanical properties are considered, including compressive strength, stress-strain relationship, tensile and flexural strengths, modulus of elasticity, shear strength, effect of elevated temperature, such as fire spalling and residual properties after fire, in-situ properties, creep, shrinkage, bond properties and structural behaviour. A chapter on fibre-reinforced SCC is included, as well as a chapter on specialty SCC, such as light-weight SCC, heavy-weight SCC, preplaced aggregate SCC, special fibre reinforced SCC and underwater concrete.

Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a relatively new buildingmaterial. Nowadays, its use is progressively changing the method ofconcrete placement on building sites. However, the successful use of SCC requires a good understanding ofthe behavior of this material, which is vastly different fromtraditional concrete. For this purpose, a lot of research has beenconducted on this area all over the world since 10 years. Intended for both practitioners and scientists, this book providesresearch results from the rheological behavior of fresh concrete todurability.

INTRODUCTION 1.1 General Conventional concrete (CC) is one of the most widely used construction materials in the world other than water [1].Among construction materials, the demanding for concrete is increasing day by day due to increasing developments in the infrastructure. However, the usage of CC will be more, and as well as the demand for ordinary Portland cement (OPC)also increases in the future. But the usage of OPCmay cause severe environmental problems such as the greenhouse effect and global warming etc., due to the production of CO2from cement in concrete
