Self-compacting concrete (SCC) captures a growing interest because of its several advantages in technical, economic and environmental terms. Especially the attention for the environmental aspects moves the research towards recycling industrial by-products, as fly ash and steel slag. In particular, there are few experimental works about the use of EAF slag in SCC. This paper summarizes the first results of an ongoing experimental work to investigate the use of EAF slag in SCC as medium aggregate.
