There is important application value and economic value in exploring the potential use of steel slag to prepare self-compacting concrete (SCC) and make full use of solid waste resources. In this paper, steel slag self-compacting concrete (SSCC) with relatively ideal workability is prepared by using steel slag instead of natural fine aggregate based on mix proportion optimization and SSCC performance research. The filling ability, passing ability and resistance segregation were tested to evaluate the workability of SSCC. The results show that when the content of steel slag sand is 20%, the workability performance of SSCC is similar to that of SCC with natural aggregates. When the content of steel slag sand is less than 60%, the performance of SSCC can also meet the workability requirements after adjusting the amount of raw materials. View Full-Text
