Recycled Aggregate

Introduction. Recycled aggregate is produced by crushing concrete, and sometimes asphalt, to reclaim the aggregate. Recycled aggregate can be used for many purposes. The primary market is road base. For information on recycling asphalt pavement into new asphalt pavement. See Asphalt Pavement Recycling.

Recycled Concrete Aggregate - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) is the designation used in BS 8500-2 for recycled aggregate principally comprising crushed concrete. Designations of recycled aggregate other than RCA are of lower quality and may contain significant quantities of masonry which would preclude or limit their use in structural concrete.

Mechanical Properties Of Recycled Aggregates Concrete

The recycled coarse aggregate will invariably have lower specific gravity and higher absorption than the original aggregate, due to the presence of cement paste in the recycled aggregate. The compressive strengths of recycled aggregate concrete are lower than those of the same mix designs made with virgin aggregate.
