Self-compacting concrete possess enhanced qualities and improved properties also working conditions due to high flow ability and elimination of compaction. Self-compacting concrete is suitable for structure with congested reinforcement without vibration, it archives high quality surface finish. The pore structure is greatly improved by the addition of the fly ash as an effective pozzolanic material; characteristics of fly ash material have also affect on the compressive strength of the self-compacting concrete. This paper presents the experimental procedure for the design of self-compacting concrete, in which we proposed the mix design with the globally acceptance result of all tests and the carried out test are slump flow test, V-funnel test, L-box test. The mix design consist of 25% fly ash (as a cement replacement material), 1.2% superplastizer. The compressive strength was checked on the 7-day, 14-day, 28-day and results are indicating that the proposed design mix can produce self-compacting concrete with higher quality.
