Critical Analysis of Recycled Aggregate and Concrete with Recycled Aggregate


Article Preview

One of the construction sector's major contributions to the preservation of the Environment and sustainable development is the reuse and recycling of the waste materials it generates (reducing, reusing, recycling and regenerating the residues that originate the constructive activity). With this view an experimental program was undertaken which helped in judging the effectiveness of using Recycled aggregate in concrete ,by assessing the properties of Recycled aggregates – Coarse and Fine. Further with the guidance of IS 10262:2009 ,Concrete mix was designed for 28 day compressive strength as 25N/mm2 using conventionally used aggregates and Recycled aggregates. From economy perspective an attempt was made to use superplasticser to reduce cement consumption. With reference to the experimental results, analysis of important properties of both the types of concrete is done and the suitability of use of recycled concrete aggregate for new concrete is judged.
