Ways to Recycle and Reuse Concrete

Concrete is recycled by using industrial crushing equipment with jaws and large impactors. After the concrete is broken up, it is usually run through a secondary impactor and is then screened to remove dirt and particles and to separate the large and small aggregate. Additional processes and equipment, such as water flotation, separators, and ...

Effect of Recycled Coarse Aggregate on Concrete Properties

Abstract. This research was conducted with the use of recycled aggregate as modification.

Recycled Aggregates for Green Concrete

Recycled Aggregates for Green Concrete . Abrahams Mwasha and Rakesh Ramnath . Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering University of the West Indies St Augustine Campus Trinidad and Tobago [email protected], [email protected] . Abstract


Recycled aggregates composed of original aggregates and adhered mortar. The physical properties of recycled aggregates depend on both adhered mortar quality and the amount of adhered mortar.

Characterization and influence of fine recycled aggregates on

Fine recycled aggregates samples originated from the ceramic and concrete recycling process and coming from two recycling plants of Madrid region have been used. Tests were performed using 1:3:0.5 volumetric cement-to-aggregate-to-water ratio. Standardized sand with fine recycled aggregate replacement percentages were: 10%, 15%, 25%, 35% and 45%.

Properties of the Recycled Aggregate Concrete

Abstract: This paper studies the recycling of solid waste concrete of the foundational content. Through the experimental research on the use of recycled aggregate and recycled concrete powder, I propose recycled coarse aggregate, recycled powder of various physical and chemical characteristic and the powder mixed with cement slurry mixed with recycled coarse aggregate on the surface of the ...

High Performance Mortar with 100% Recycled Aggregate using

Research Abstract. Concrete and mortar are materials commonly used in construction. Their main compounds are cement, aggregates (sand and gravel) and water. In an effort to increase the sustainability of these materials, the idea of using recycled aggregates from ground old concrete and using it to make mortar and concrete has gained more interest.


To obtain good quality concrete using recycled aggregate it is necessary to follow the minimum requirements defined by the respective Building Standards. Acceptable properties of aggregates are an elemental base for concrete quality; however adequate

Replacement of Conventional Aggregate by Recyled Aggregate

REPLACEMENT OF CONVENTIONAL AGGREGATE BY RECYCLED AGGREGRATE. ABSTRACT. In India very few attempts have been made to use Recycled aggregate on large scale Due to modernization and reconstruction there are large amount of demolition wastes in land fills which is a great threat to environment.

Effect of Recycled Concrete Aggregate Properties on the

Abstract Application of recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) has increased recently as a sustainable alternative in concrete construction. Although application of RCA has substantially grown over the past decades, issues related to its structural performance and long-term behaviour still prevent

Use Of Recycled Aggregate In Concrete – IJERT

ABSTRACT Use of recycled aggregate in concrete can be useful for environmental protection. Recycled aggregates are the materials for the future. The application of recycled aggregate has been started in a large number of construction projects of many European, American, Russian and Asian countries.

Modulus of elasticity of recycled aggregate concrete

Jun 11, 2015 · The compressive strength of recycled aggregate concrete was found to range between 18 and 65 MPa, and therefore a prediction equation is proposed for recycled aggregate concrete that considers the ratio and types of recycled coarse aggregates used.


ABSTRACT: The recycled aggregate is obtained from construction waste or waste concrete, which is then made into recycled concrete. In this paper, according to the characteristics of local raw materials, the source and processing technology of recycled aggregates is analyzed,

Recycled Aggregates - Portland Cement Association

Recycled concrete aggregates contain not only the original aggregates, but also hydrated cement paste. This paste reduces the specific gravity and increases the porosity compared to similar virgin aggregates.


ii Abstract As interest in sustainable materials such as recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) rises, effort, it is important to understand the properties of RAC that relates to its use in construction. To respond to this need, various tests were performed to investigate the properties of RAC.

Project Details - Virginia Department of Transportation

Based on this limitation, VDOT does not use recycled concrete aggregate as a base course or subbase. In this study, researchers will add various percentages of recycled concrete aggregate to 21B virgin aggregate to evaluate the potential of the respective mixtures to clog underdrain geotextile fabric.

Recycled Plastics as Coarse Aggregate for Structural Concrete

A healthy and sustainable reuse of plastics offers a host of advantages. The suitability of recycled plastics as coarse aggregate in concrete and its advantages are discussed here. The initial questions arising of the bond strength and the heat of hydration regarding plastic aggregate were solved.

Chapter Nine - Literature Review

A value of 700 psi appeared to be reasonable. â ¢ Assume the free water to cement ratio was the same when using a recycled aggregate/sand combination as would be used for a conventional concrete. â ¢ The required water for the recycled aggregate mix should be approximately 5% more than for conven- tional concrete. â ¢ The sand-to ...

Call for Papers - International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) is a Peer Reviewed, Open Access International Journal. Notably, it is a Referred, Highly Indexed, Online International Journal with High Impact Factor.


recycled aggregate is less than the respective resistan-ce of natural aggregate, which is a consequence of easier separation and crushing of the mortar layer around the recycled aggregate grains. In addition, recycled aggregate, in most cases, meets standard requirements in terms of the resistance to crushing
