Microwave-assisted beneficiation of recycled concrete

Aug 01, 2011· Recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) are produced by reducing the size of concrete debris through multiple crushing stages. Depending on the size, the crushed concrete particle may comprise one or more particles of natural coarse aggregate held together and surrounded fully or partially by a layer of mortar (Fig. 1a and b).In the present study, such RCA particles are referred to as

protect the natural environment. Well, in producing recycled concrete, the first step is the beneficiation of RCA, and the quality of RCA plays a decisive role for the properties of recycled concrete. Therefore, for the wide application of recycled concrete, the performance of recycled coarse aggregate should be

Separation processes to improve the quality of recycled

Jan 01, 2013· Effects of RCA beneficiation on the mechanical properties of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) The effects of a reduction in the mortar content on the basic properties of RCA, including water absorption, density and abrasion resistance, were discussed in Section 10.1 .

ApplicationsRecycled Aggregate CharacteristicsMix DesignSustainabilityCase Study: O’Hare Modernization ProjectReferencesRecycling concrete provides sustainability several different ways. The simple act of recycling the concrete reduces the amount of material that must be landfilled. The concrete itself becomes aggregate and any embedded metals can be removed and recycled as well. As space for landfills becomes premium, this not only helps reduce the need for landfills, but also reduces the economic impact of the project. Moreover, using recycled concrete aggregates reduces the need for virgin aggregates. This in turn reduces the en

Use of RECYCLED AGGREGATES In CONCRETE- A Paradigm Shift

The extensive research on recycled concrete aggregate and recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) as started from year 1945 in various part of the world after second world war, but in a fragmented manner. First effort has been made by Nixon in 1977 who complied all the work on recycled aggregate carried out between 1945-1977 and prepared a state-of

Improvement of the Durability of Recycled Masonry

The use of recycled masonry aggregate for concrete is mostly limited by the worse properties in comparison with natural aggregate. For these reasons it is necessary to find ways to improve the quality of recycled masonry aggregate concrete and make it more durable. One possibility is utilization of crystalline admixture which was verified in this study by laboratory measurements of key

enhancements than that of SCC containing the same percentage of recycled concrete aggregate. Also, the combination of 25% crushed bricks aggregate + 15% recycled concrete aggregate facilitate the uses of significant percentages of these ruined buildings to be recycled with the production for the construction of new buildings.

Aggregates for Concrete Portland Cement Association

Recycled-Concrete Aggregate. Recycled-concrete aggregate generally has a higher absorption and a lower specific gravity than conventional aggregate. Absorption values typically range from 3% to 10%, depending on the concrete being recycled; this absorption rate lies between those for natural and lightweight. Aggregate, shown in the graph to the

Quality improvement of recycled fine aggregate using steel

Jun 23, 2017· There is a need to promote high-value added utilization of recycled aggregates, considering the aspect of effective use. It should be noted, however, that recycled fine aggregates are generally low in quality due to the presence of cement paste attached to the aggregate surface. Based on this, there have been studies, which aimed to improve the quality of recycled aggregates using
