Abstract: Natural fine aggregates are becoming more limited, and their production and consignment are turning out hard day by day. Therefore, the production of concrete needs to turn into eco-friendly construction practice. Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) self-consolidates itself without any external vibration, and subsequently it quickens the concrete placement process and decreases the labor demands. In this study, the Flexural behavior of the SCC was studied. Reinforced SCC beam specimens were cast and tested in laboratories. The flexural behavior of SCC with copper slag as replacement for sand is delimited with the flexural test on beam specimens by examining the factors like deflection, flexural strength, crack pattern and strain pattern.
Keywords: SCC, Copper slag, Flexural behaviour, Durability.
