Self compacting concrete is one of "the most revolutionary developments" in concrete research; this concrete is able to flow and to fill the most restacked places of the form work without vibration. There are several methods for testing its properties in the fresh state: the most frequently used are slump flow test, L box and V funnel. This work presents properties of self compacting concrete, mixed with fly ash. The test results for acceptance characteristics of self-compacting concrete such as slump flow; V-funnel and L-Box are presented. Further, compressive strength at the ages of 7, 28 days was also determined and results are included here.
