This paper examines the water permeability and chloride penetrability of self-compacting concrete with fly ash and silica fume as admixtures. The influence of 28-day concrete strength on concrete permeability is also investigated. It was found that addition of fly ash and silica fume was effective in reducing the concrete permeability. Most self-compacting concrete specimens showed low to very low water permeability and chloride penetrability. Test results also indicated that the 28-day concrete strength should not be used as an indicator for concrete permeability.
