Paper Title:
The Effect of Water-Cement Ratio and Curing Age on the Strength of Recycled Concrete
  Abstract

The effect of water-cement ratio and curing age on the strength of recycled concrete was studied by experiment with the combination of the recycled coarse aggregate adding natural sand. The results showed that with the increase of curing age, the greater the water-cement ratio is, the smaller the strength growth rate is; the smaller the water-cement ratio is, the greater the strength growth rate is. There is a relatively larger increase in the growth rate of 90d strength than 28d’, which is significantly higher than that of the ordinary concrete. The linear relationship between water-cement ratio and strength of recycled concrete is worse than that of ordinary concrete. Under the same water-cement ratio and curing age, the strength of recycled concrete is lower than that of ordinary concrete, and the empirical formulas between the strength of 28d and 7d, 90d and 28d were obtained.
