Abstract Steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) is developed traditionally from ordinary concrete admixed with randomly distributed steel fibers. The matrix of SFRC is always formed by adjusting the mix proportion used for the ordinary concrete, which plays the role of controlling the properties of SFRC. In this paper, the mix proportion of self-compacting concrete (SCC) compared with vibration compacted concrete (VCC) is statistically analyzed. A predictive formula for water-binder ratio is proposed in relation to the designed compressive strength of SCC and the cement strength affected by mineral admixtures. It is expected to provide reference for the mix proportion design for flowing and high-flowing SFRC.
