Self-Compacting Concrete gets dense and compacted due to its own self weight. Experimental investigations have to been carried out to determine different characters like workability and strength of Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) with jute fibre. Short discrete vegetable fibers namely sisal, coir and jute have been examined for their suitability for incorporation in cement concrete. Jute is a natural fibre obtained from a plant which look like giant pineapples, and during harvest the leaves are cut as close to the ground as possible. The soft tissues are scrapped from the fibres by hand or machine. The fibres are dried and brushes remove the remaining dirt, resulting in a clean fibre. The concrete is required to have properties like high strength, high durability, better serviceability and long life of concrete structures. Tests involving various fiber proportions for a particular mix design of SCC. Test methods used to study the properties of fresh concrete were slump test, V - Funnel and L - box test. Then materials were hand mixed with 1% addition of Jute fiber in M 25 mix design and casted in cubes (150mm x 150mm x 150mm), cylinders (150mm x 300mm) and prism (75mm x 75mm x 300mm). The super plasticizers are used. The obtained specimens were subjected to test the compressive, split tensile and Flexural strength. And the compressive, split tensile and Flexural strengths of the specimens were analyzed after 7 days and 28 days of curing.
