Paper Title:
On Properties of Recycled Coarse Aggregate from Repeatedly Recycling Waste Concrete
  Abstract

The properties of recycled coarsee aggregates from repeatedly recycling waste concrete were determined. In this study, five series of concrete mixtures using coarse and fine natural aggregates were prepared, which have the same objective slump value from 35mm to 50mm and different compressive strengths ranging from 25MPa to 60 MPa. These five concretes were crushed, sieved, washed with water, hot treatmented at 300°C before they were used as recycled aggregates. After that, recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) was produced with an objectively compressive strength of 30MPa, in which the recycled coarse aggregate was used as 30%, 70% and 90% replacements of natural coarse aggregate and recycled fine aggregate as 10%, 20%, and 30% replacements of natural fine aggregate. After that, these recycled concretes were used as second recycled aggregates to produce RAC with the same objectively compressive strength of 30MPa. The physical properties of coarse aggregates including apparent density, water absorption, attached mortar content and crushing value were tested and their mineral characteristics were analyzed. The results showed that the quality of recycled coarse aggregates from twicely recycling waste concrete reached the requirements from structural concrete.
