Green Concrete, Demolished Waste


Recycled aggregates are composed of crushed concrete, inert particles processed from the materials that have been already used in the structural constructions and demolition (C & D) debris. The aim of this project is to determine the strength characteristics of recycled aggregates for application in high strength structural concrete, which will give a better understanding on the properties of concrete with recycled aggregates, as an alternative material to coarse aggregate (NA) in structural concrete. The aim of this thesis is to determine and compare the strength of concrete by using different percentage of recycled aggregates. Recycled aggregate is also the type of artificial aggregate which is obtained from Construction and demolition (C&D) wastes. Constructions and demolitions are processes that go one after the other. The demolished building aggregate in India generally goes to waste in landfill operation. Recycling of these waste materials from building demolition can provide a solution to this problem. The investigation was carried out using Specific gravity test, Water absorption test, Aggregate Impact Value test, Crushing value test, Sieve analysis test, Workability test and Compressive strength test. There were total of six batches of concrete mixes, consisting of every 20% increment of recycled aggregate replacement, from 0% to 100%.
