Abstract: Concrete is the widely used building material which is adopted for all types of Civil Engineering works. Annually, 8 to 12 billion tones of natural aggregates were consumed by the construction industry around the world. In today’s world, environmental protection is a major issue which is caused by depletion of natural aggregates from river beds and quarries. Thus, there is an urgent need to determine the replacement material for natural aggregates. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the structural performance of self consolidating concrete (SCC) made with concrete debris as a replacement for natural coarse aggregate. Concrete debris aggregate was replacing the natural coarse aggregate at percentage ranges from 0% to 30%, at an interval of 5%. In order to check the structural performance of SCC with concrete debris, reinforced concrete beams were prepared with M30 grade concrete and the experimental results were compared. Class F Flyash was utilized as a viscosity modifying agent.
