In this paper, the crushed dune sand and limestone filler were using as mineral addition in the formulation of self-compacting concrete (SCC), for that a comparison was carried out on their effect on the properties and behaviour of SCC in a fresh and hardened state. The results of the mechanical tests showed that there is a light difference between the concrete containing limestone filler or crushed dune sand. Moreover, the SCC containing crushed dune sand presents a better behavior at the shrinkage than the SCC with limestone filler.
