The self-compacting concretes (SCC’s) are characterized by their high fluidity so that they could be placed without any vibration. The effect of fillers addition on the behavior of SCC in fresh and hardened state is of great importance. This incorporation of marble powder aims to preserve the environment and to widen its use in the future in SCC formulation. The present research experimental program examines the effect of the partial substitution of cement with marble powder on the characteristics of self-compacting concrete in fresh and hardened state. Thus, the marble powder (MP) was introduced into the composition of self-compacting concretes at dosages of 10%, 20% and 30%. Three water cement ratios (W/C) of 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6 were maintained for the studied mixtures. The reference one with 100% of cement served as a control concrete mix. Finally, it can be concluded that such valuation of the marble waste could be beneficial for self-compacted concrete formulation.
