Study on Mechanical Properties and Water Permeability of Recycled Aggregate Porous Concrete
Experiments were conducted to study the mechanical properties and water permeability of recycled aggregate porous concrete. The orthogonal test was designed considering four parameters including water to cement ratio, cement content, grain series of recycled aggregate and aggregate to cement ratio, each parameter was set at three levels. Performances of porous concrete were measured such as cubic compressive strength, flexural strength, continuous porosity and water penetration coefficient. Test results are analyzed on the basis of orthogonal test method, the optimum proportions corresponding to every test parameters are given out. The ranges of every test parameters are also proposed. It provides a reference for constructing porous concrete roads by recycled aggregate made of old concrete from dismantled buildings.
