Abstract

In view of need for environmental protection, use of recycled aggregates in concrete can be very beneficial. In future, it seems to an increasing trend not only for meeting of increased need but also due to low material cost. In several countries of E.U., U.S.A., & Asian countries, the application of recycled aggregates has been started. For this, these countries have started several infrastructural laws relaxation to promote the recycled aggregates’ use. This paper deals with the basic properties of recycled aggregates along with their comparison with natural aggregates. The changes in properties like compressive strength, flexural strength, workability, water absorption etc. are determined & their effects on concrete work are discussed here. In general, current status & trend in India with its upcoming needs & also successful utilization are discussed. Future recommendations relating to recycled aggregates are also included.
