Paper Title:
Experiment on Freezing and Thawing Durability Characteristics of Recycled Aggregate Concrete
  Abstract

Recycling old concrete as an alternative source for production new concrete can solve the environment produced by old concrete. To make such recycling feasible, the strength and durability of the recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) must be assured. Prepared recycled coarse and fine aggregate using natural concrete specimens produced by compressive strength test of cubic concrete. Prepared recycled aggregate concrete which replacement ratios is 50% and 70%. Processed compressive strength test of cubic RAC specimens. Carried through the test for resistance of concrete to rapid freezing and thawing on both RAC and natural concrete. As a result of the experiment, the strength of the RAC can reach the design strength, however, the index for the resistance of concrete to rapid freezing and thawing depressed to a certainty degree relative to that of common concrete. Replacement ratio of aggregate influenced relative dynamic modulus of elasticity of RAC seriously. The weight change increased as long as the number of freezing and thawing cycles increased, and the weight change increased when replacement ratio elevation. RAC showed a sharp weight loss during the testing period, and reduce the water cement ratio can increase the durability characteristics of RAC. Also, absorption of the recycled aggregate influenced durability properties of RAC badly.
