Abstract: Every structure has a major concern regarding corrosion of reinforcement. This leads to reduction in strength and serviceability of structures. Self compacting concrete (SCC) has a high flowing ability which fills the voids in reinforced concrete without need of any vibrator and it is known as non-segregate concrete. This paper emphasis to study the mechanical properties of concrete by partial replacement of cement with GGBS and silica fume. Chloride ion penetration is also carried out in this study. 60 cubes (150×150×150mm) were casted to determine the compressive strength (24 cubes) and percentage of chloride ion penetration (36 cubes). Effects occurred with partial replacement in SCC and corrosion characteristics were assessed from this experimental work. For this research work GGBS is partially with cement in 30%, 50%, 70% and 2% silica fume by weight of GGBS, admixture of 0.5% weight of cement is added. It is observed from this experimental study, there are a huge strength and less corrosion by partial replacement of GGBS and by addition of silica fume.
