SCC is expensive when compared with normal conventional concrete. Hence, it is desired to produce low cost SCC by replacing cement with higher percentages of fly ash, which is a no cost material and available in abundance. At the same time to achieve higher grade HVFASCC, micro silica which is otherwise condensed silica fume can also be used along with fly ash to enhance the strength properties of HVFASCC. By replacing fly ash in high volumes in the mix, high amount of pozzolanic material becomes available, majorly reactive silica, for which more calcium hydroxide is necessary for further pozzolanic reaction. As we are reducing cement quantity, the amount of calcium hydroxide available is reduced thus demanding external addition of hydrated lime which can be supplied as additive to cater to the need of calcium hydroxide required for reactive silica in fly ash.The present investigation aims to achieve strength for high volume fly ash self-compacting concrete. The replacement of cement with fly ash is made in 45%, 50%, 55%, 60%, 65% and 70% with 20% hydrated lime and 10% silica fume in one trial. In another trial, 30% hydrated lime and 10% silica fume is added with replacement of fly ash to cement varying in same percentages. The design mix is tested for workability and flowability and cubes are casted for compression strength test and tested at 28 day,, 56 day, and 90 day,.
