Self-Compacting Concrete is considered one of most remarkable developments in
concrete technology. It is a new type of high performance concrete with the ability of
flowing under its own weight and without the need of vibrations. Recently, a great native
interest had been derived towards self-compacting concrete.
This work aims to present a summary study about properties of fresh selfcompacting
concrete depending on the results obtained by some native researches, thus
focusing on the main common features between their results. It had been focused on the
effect of type and proportions of constituent materials incorporated in producing selfcompacting
concrete. This considered the most influential factors in controlling its
properties.
