This paper presents the workability properties of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) containing a ternary mix binder using Ordinary Portland Cement and agro-industrial wastes i.e; palm oil fuel ash (POFA) and low calcium based fly ash (FA). The mixtures were prepared with 0 to 40% cement replacement using agro-industrial wastes at 10% intervals. Water to binder ratio and cement content is kept constant at 0.38 and 540 kg/m3 respectively. Self-compact-ability parameters investigated were Slump flow, J-Ring, V-Funnel, Sieve Stability and Visual Stability Index Tests. It is found that agro-industrial wastes provide a positive effect on the workability properties of self-compacting concrete.
