APPLICATION OF RECYCLED AGGREGATE IN CONCRETE:

2016-12-15  The use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) as an alternate for dense-graded aggregate base course (DGABC) applications over the recent years have been approximately 10% to 15%.Presently 60 to 70 percent of demolished concrete is using as sub-base course aggregate for road construction. Researchers are continuing investigations to utilize recycled aggregate in new construction effectively. Most of the contractors are left with the decision as to which material to be used where their usage of RCA is seemingly based on cost. The aggregate particles of recycled concrete compare well to conventional mineral aggregates in that they possess good particle shape, high absorption, and low specific gravity.
