Mix Design and Properties of Recycled Aggregate

26/08/2014 At fresh state, the mix design of concrete with recycled aggregates requires an additional quantity of water to obtain a similar workability as a concrete formulated with natural aggregates (Hansen and Boegh 1986). Such a modification may obviously affect the mechanical characteristics of recycled aggregates concrete. Several studies have investigated the microstructure of recycled aggregates concrete

USE OF CONTAMINATED RECYCLED AGGREGATES FOR CONCRETE

recycled aggregates in the mix design of concrete is a solution to decrease nature depletion. Natural concrete slabs were cured in water, sea water, chloride solutions or sulphate solutions and then crushed to obtain virgin and contaminated (polluted) recycled aggregates. The aim of this research is the total replacement (100% coarse and fine) of natural aggregates (NA) by recycled concrete

Guidance for Specification: Recycled and secondary

Recommendation: Permit the use of recycled or secondary aggregates but do not over-specify.. When specifying recycled and secondary aggregates, the factors to balance are resource depletion, transportation CO 2 impacts and implications on mix design. These are all affected by availability, and concrete producers are well placed to ensure the most sustainable aggregates for each project are
