Development trends for high rise constructions, modern skyscrapers are indicating that building of such constructions with normal concretes and low consistency is impossible, therefore there is a need for concrete with high processes because of great amount of reinforcement in cross section of concrete elements. Solution for such construction is self-compacted concrete because of ability to fill good formworks without compaction and vibration. In this line, we conducted an experimental research to determine the mechanical characteristics of concrete, cracks, strains, deflections, strains on long term process and strains at failure test. The experimentally-obtained results will be presented for both types of concrete for: compression strength, splitting tensile strength, strains on concrete and strains on reinforcement for duration failure testing time t = 40 days.
