Abstract: Granite fines or rock dust is a by-product obtained during crushing of granite rocks and is also called quarry dust (QD). This paper deals with using quarry dust as an alternative to fine aggregate (FA) in SCC and reports the strength behaviour and hardened properties of such SCCs. Although in normal concretes, introducing QD increases the water demand, in SCC, it has been successfully used for increasing the deformability and passing ability of fresh concrete. Also, it was noted that by increasing the pouring heights of an SCC, the compressive strength and splitting tensile strength of concrete were unaffected.
