Experimental Research on Mechanical Performance of Self-Compacting Reinforced Concrete Beam with Recycled Coarse Aggregates
In order to study the mechanical performance of self-compacting reinforced concrete beam with recycled coarse aggregates, recycled concrete and recycled gravel were taken as coarse aggregates with the particle size from 50 to150mm, two groups of specimen of self-compacting reinforced concrete beams with recycled coarse aggregates were made. After seven days, their bending strength were tested using method of one-third point loaded of simple beam on the testing machine. The results showed that the recycled coarse aggregates are bonded closely with the self-compacting concrete, its bond performance is good; Compared to ordinary reinforced concrete beam, it shows a smaller stiffness and a bigger mid-span deflection. In addition, the different combination of recycled concrete could reduce the self-compacting reinforced concrete’s stiffness with recycled coarse aggregate and increase its deflection.
