Self compacting concrete is a type of concrete which flows under the influence of gravity without segregation is used in heavily reinforced structural members. It avoids the need of vibration equipment. Steel fibres can improve crack resistance, impact and fatigue resistance, shrinkage reduction and toughness. This project explores the strength studies of self-compacting concrete using steel fibres as reinforcement to enhance the mechanical properties. Various tests are to be carried out to
