[PDF] Influence of Type and Replacement Level of Recycled Aggregates on Concrete Properties

The study reports results of tests, using only natural aggregates, of a control concrete and nine recycled aggregate concretes. The recycled aggregates were classified according to measured specific gravity and water absorption into three different types, namely: RS II for recycled fine aggregate having 2.36 specific gravity and 5.4% water absorption; RG III for recycled coarse aggregate

Alkali

Alkali-Aggregate Reaction. In most concrete, aggregates are more or less chemically inert. However, some aggregates react with the alkali hydroxides in concrete, causing expansion and cracking over a period of many years. This alkali-aggregate reaction has two forms: alkali-silica reaction (ASR) and alkali-carbonate reaction (ACR).

Different Types of Ready Mix Concrete

Self-consolidating Concrete (SCC) SCC has very high flow; therefore, it is self-leveling, eliminating the need for vibration. Due to the superplasiticizers used—chemical admixtures that impart very high flow—SCC exhibits very high compaction as a result of its low air content. Consequently, SCC can have very high strengths, exceeding 50 MPa.
