The paper presented herein was carried out to investigate the shrinkage and permeability characteristics of self ?compacting concretes contained recycled green glass aggregate. The total binder content was 570 kg/m3 and at a water-binder material (w/b) ratio of 0.35. In addition, fly ash (FA) was used in concrete at 20% of total binder content. A total of 15 SCCs in addition to control mixture were produced and classified into three series. Each series consist of five ratios of recycled green glass aggregate as a replacement of natural aggregate, the ratios of replacement was 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100% by the weight. Permeability properties of SCCs were tested in terms of chloride ion permeability, water sorptivity, and gas permeability at 28 days. Also, physical properties were examined through drying shrinkage accompanied by the water loss and restrained shrinkage of SCCs was monitored over 50 days of drying period because these physical tests became a constant after 20 days of casting. Test results showed that incorporating of recycled green coarse and/or fine glass aggregates negatively affected on the permeability properties of SCCs. While, the drying shrinkage and restrained shrinkage cracking of recycled fine glass aggregate (RFGA) concretes had significantly improves unlike the use of recycled coarse glass aggregate (RCGA) and utilized both fine and coarse recycled glass aggregate when replacement ratio exceeding 40%. However, all the results which obtained when using recycled glass aggregate were less than that when using natural aggregate (NA). The same results were observed on the time of initiate cracking.
