The fresh quality of a concrete mixture subjected to high temperature and prolonged mixing is adversely affected. These harsh conditions would result in a stiff concrete that is hard to handle and place. This paper investigates the coupled effects of temperature and prolonged mixing on green self-consolidating concrete (GSCC) incorporating a ternary blend of fly ash and silica fume. This study was carried out in the construction material laboratory of Abu Dhabi University under an outdoor environment during the summer of 2014. The SCC mixtures were continuously mixed for 110 minutes at a temperature ranging from 25 to 40 °C to simulate the actual conditions of concrete during transporting to a construction site. The fresh properties were tested using BT2 portable rheometer, slump flow, T50 and visual stability index (VSI). The results showed that the ternary blend of silica fume and fly ash enhanced the rheological properties of SCC mixtures under high temperature and prolonged mixing time.
