treatment applied on recycled concrete aggregate aggregate resources and landfill space [2,4]. On the other side the main cost savings when using RCA obtained from conramined concrete, are landfill avoidance savings; cost savings due to avoiding purchasing natural aggregate represents a minor part of the total savings .
quality of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) compared to that of natural aggregate. Hence, its use is limited up to 30% replacement of natural aggregate at present. The attached mortar of the RCA can be removed by mechanical treatment, acid treatment, thermal treatment (500 to 750°C [932 to 1382°F]), and microwave treat-ment.

P. Chindaprasirt, T. Cao, in Handbook of Alkali-Activated Cements, Mortars and Concretes, 2015. 19.2.2 Recycled concrete and masonry (RCM) Recycled concrete and masonry (RCM) aggregate can be described as graded aggregate produced from sorted and clean waste concrete and masonry. The RCM material may contain brick, gravel crush rock or other forms of stony materials as blended materials.
4. Tests for recycled concrete using coated recycled coarse aggregate 4.1 Types of concrete and mix proportions The types of concretes and mix proportions are listed in Table 5. Two types of recycled coarse aggregate were used, i.e., middle- and low-quality recycled coarse ag-gregate. Three types of surface treatment were applied,
This study evaluated the use of recycled concrete as coarse aggregate in new concrete pavements. Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) produced from demolished pavements in three geographically-dispersed locations in Washington state were used to perform testson aggregate characte ristics, fresh concrete propertiesand hardened concrete properties.

Jan 15, 2018· The main difference between Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA) and Natural Aggregate (NA) is the mortar adhered on RCA. This paper presents the effect of RCA to concrete and a treatment method utilized to improve the properties of RCA, by reducing the amount of the adhered mortar, and therefore the properties of the Recycled Aggregate Concrete (RAC).

economic benefits. Recycled concrete is a construction material that the community does not need to pay for; those who generated the concrete waste pay a fee to have it recycled [18, 26]. The strength of recycled aggregate concrete is about 10 to 15 per cent less as compared to concrete with fresh aggregate.
More recently a third type of aggregate has emerged: recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) which is produced by crushing concrete reclaimed from demolished highways, buildings and other structures. Aging infrastructure, scarce landfill space, cost savings and environmental benefits all fuel the growing demand for concrete recycling.
recycled concrete aggregates, but beyond these levels, there was a systematic decrease in strength as the content of recycled aggregates increased (Dhir et al., 1999). The strength characteristics of concrete was not affected by the quality of recycled aggregate at high water/cement ratio, it was only affected when the water/cement ratio is low
