In order to improve the environmental friendliness of concrete industry, an attempt has been made with supplementary cementitous material for partial replacement of cement. Partial replacement of cement with Fly ash, GGBS and Microsilica made in Self compacting concrete, i.e Quaternary Blended Self Compacting Concrete (QBSCC) was done to a maximum extent of cement replacement. In the part of study of QBSCC properties, steel fibers are incorporated in Reinforced QBSCC to improve the flexural behavior and compared with the control self compacting concrete for different water binder ratios. The result shows that the flexural strength was improved in Fiber Reinforced QBSCC with control self compacting concrete.
