Conference Name :
Self-Compacting Concrete gets dense and compacted due to its own self weight. Experimental investigations have to been carried out to determine different characters like workability and strength of self-compacting concrete (SCC) with jute fibre. Short discrete vegetable fibres namely sisal, coir and jute have been examined for their suitability for incorporation in cement concrete. Jute is a natural fibres obtained from a plant which look like giant pineapples and during harvest the leaves are cut as close to the ground as possible. The soft tissues are scrapped from the fibres by hand or machine. The fibres are dried and brushes remove the remaining dirt, resulting in a clean fibre. The concrete is required to have properties like high strength, high durability, better serviceability and long life of concrete structures. Tests involving various fibre proportions for a particular mix design of SCC. Test methods used to study the properties of fresh concrete were slum test, flow test and compacting factor test. The properties like compression, Tensile and Flexural strength of SCC were also investigated by taking tests casting cube, cylinder and beams after curing of 7 and 28 days.
