The addition of recycled aggregates – both concrete and glass – require corrections to the mix design Through careful monitoring of the mix design, a producer looking to increase recycled content should be able to make a sustainable process contribution without a cost increase The rate of water absorption is higher for recycled concrete .
Aggregates are inert granular materials such as sand, gravel, or crushed stone that, along with water and portland cement, are an essential ingredient in concrete For a good concrete mix, aggregates need to be clean, hard, strong particles free of absorbed chemicals or coatings of clay and other fine materials that could cause the .
C16/20 CONCRETE STRENGTH CLASS DESIGN WITH RECYCLED AGGREGATES
The present paper describes the mix design and experimental tests carried out on C16/20 concrete strength class with recycled aggregat The developed research reveals favourable results in order to militate for using of recycled concrete aggregate in regular concrete strength classes respectively .
Recycled Concretes Made with Waste Ready-Mix Concrete ,
In this paper, some characteristics of recycled coarse aggregates obtained by crushing waste ready-mix concrete, as well as the mechanical and durability properties of recycled concretes made by using 25, 50, and 75% of these aggregates, are presented Recycled concretes show lower compressive strength than conventional concrete for ,
Quikrete Green Concrete Mix comprises 50% recycled material, including recycled aggregates, fly ash, and/or slag cements, diverting 025 cubic feet of waste from landfills per 60-pound bag of material, according to the firm

Sustainable Construction - Building & Construction ,
Sustainable Construction Recycled Materials for Construction Eco-Concrete Eco-concrete is essentially concrete produced using substitutes for natural aggregates and natural sand In an eco-concrete prototype developed by a ready-mix concrete supply company, Holcim (Singapore) Pte Ltd, recycled aggregates from demolition waste were used to replace 100% of the natural coarse aggregates ,
Design of Normal Strength Concrete Mixtures with ,
Design of Normal Strength Concrete Mixtures with Recycled Concrete Aggregates AM Knaack1 and YC Kurama2 , use recycled concrete aggregates as replacement for natural aggregat Three mix design methods utilizing direct weight replacement, equivalent mortar replacement, and direct volume replacement are compared based on concrete ,
Concrete mix design is the process of finding the proportions of concrete mix in terms of ratios of cement, sand and coarse aggregat For eg, a concrete mix of proportions 1:2:4 means that cement, fine and coarse aggregate are in the ratio 1:2:4 or the mix contains one part of cement, two parts .

Use of RECYCLED AGGREGATES In CONCRETE- A Paradigm ,
The use of recycled aggregates in concrete prove to be a valuable building materials in technical, environment and economical respect Recycled aggregate posses relatively lower bulk density, crushing and impact values and higher water absorption as compared to natural aggregate The compressive strength of recycled aggregate concrete is .
With the approval of the Engineer, crushed recycled portland cement concrete may be used as coarse aggregate for classes of concrete with a specified compressive strength of 2,500 psi or less Crushed recycled portland cement concrete
Green Concrete Mix comprises 50% recycled material, including recycled aggregates, fly ash, and/or slag cements, diverting 025 cubic feet of waste from landfills per 60-pound bag of material, according to the firm The material achieves a compressive strength of 3,500 psi in 28 days, meeting ASTM .
