Abstract With the sustainable development of green construction materials in civil engineering, self-compacting steel fiber reinforced concrete (SC-SFRC) has attracted widespread attention due to its superior self-compacting performance and excellent hardened properties. In this paper, 301 groups of test data from published literatures were collected to quantify the characteristics of the mix proportion of SC-SFRC. The type, aspect ratio and volume fraction of steel fiber commonly used in SC-SFRC are discussed and the effects of steel fiber on the workability and mechanical properties of SC-SFRC are statistically studied. The relationship of cubic compressive strength and water-to-binder ratio and that of the splitting tensile strengths between SC-SFRC and referenced self-compacting concrete (SCC) are also evaluated. Based on these analyses, the reasonable ranges of material components in the mix proportion design of SC-SFRC are determined. The results showed that with several adjusted parameters, the calculation model of the water-to-binder ratio for the mix proportion design of ordinary concrete is suitable for SC-SFRC. The calculation model of tensile strength is suggested for SC-SFRC with various types of steel fiber.
