Self-compacting concrete (SCC) is a concrete which has a high flowing ability with no segregation and which compacts under its own weight. Self-compacting concrete is combined with glass fibers to create glass fiber reinforced self-compacting concrete (GFRSCC). This thesis details the mechanical properties of Self-compacting concrete using four percentages of glass fibers i.e., 0%, 0.1%, 0.15%, 0.2%. Experimental investigation is carried out to find out Mechanical properties of Self-compacting

Compressive strength, Split tensile strength, Flexural strength, Durability, Load Vs Deflection characteristics are found by using different percentages of glass fibers for M30 & M40 grades and comparative study is made. Analytical models are developed by using ABAQUS software for M30, M40 grade plane SCC. Mix design was performed by following all the EFNARC Guidelines and laboratory tests were conducted to verify the properties of self compacting concrete. Water-cement ratio is 0.38 and fly ash was replaced with 30% by weight of cement.
