Four mixes incorporating cement kiln dust with partial cement replacement of 10%, 20%, 30%, and 40% were produced and compared with a control mix of Normally Vibrated Concrete (NVC).Superplasticizer was used to increase the flow-ability of SCC mixes.Partial replacement of cement in SCC with cheap available industrial by-product could produce environmentally durable concrete with similar properties of normal concrete.In the current research, SCC was produced by blending Cement Kiln Dust (CKD) with cement in different ratios.Ordinarily, concrete is a dense, vicous material when mixed, and when used in construction, requires the use of vibration or other techniques (known as compaction) to remove air bubbles (cavitation), and honeycomb-like holes, especially at the surfaces, where air has been trapped during pouring.This kind of air content (unlike that in aerated concrete) is not desired and weakens the concrete if left.

This led to the development of self-compacting concrete, primarily through the work by Okamura. The first usable version of self-compacting concrete was completed in 1988 and was named “High Performance Concrete”, and later proposed as “Self Compacting High Performance Concrete”.The fresh and hardened mechanical properties of all mixes were determined and evaluated.Moreover, time-dependent behavior was investigated for all mixes in terms of drying shrinkage a concrete mix which has a low yield stress, high deformability, good segregation resistance (prevents separation of particles in the mix), and moderate viscosity (necessary to ensure uniform suspension of solid particles during transportation, placement (without external compaction), and thereafter until the concrete sets).In everyday terms, when poured, SCC is an extremely fluid mix with the following distinctive practical features - it flows very easily within and around the formwork, can flow through obstructions and around corners ("passing ability"), is close to self-levelling (although not actually self-levelling), does not require vibration or tamping after pouring, and follows the shape and surface texture of a mold (or form) very closely once set.
