The use of recycled aggregates from construction and demolition wastes is showing prospective application in construction as alternative to primary (natural) aggregates. It conserves natural resources and reduces the space required for the landfill disposal.
Aggregate can be used in a number of ways in construction. In roads and railway ballast the aggregates are used to resist the overall (static as well as dynamic) load, to distribute the load properly to the supporting ground and to drain the water off the surface.
01/11/2019· In 1998, about 20 k tonnes of recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) were used for the construction of the asphalt course's base layer of a 2 km longitudinal section of the motorway.
Aggregates from selected materials and industrial by-products, on the other hand, have greater potential for use in concrete and/or as road construction materials. A number of manufactured and recycled aggregates are readily availe in certain localities.
Recycled aggregates are used in building construction. In this study recycled aggregates are used as pavement construction material. For constructing a pavement or road mainly used materials are aggregates, bitumen and soil.

21/10/2018· In general, there is a 10% decrease in strength when recycled coarse aggregates are used. Uses of Crushed Concrete Aggregates Crushed Concrete has a wide variety of uses within the civil construction industry and has been incorporated into major projects. The uses of crushed concrete is divided into two major groups:
The recycled aggregates can used in the pavement construction. For assessing the suitability of using recycled aggregates in pavement construction three test were conducted. The results obtained from the aggregate crushing test, impact test and specific gravity test are within the desirable limit. From the test result, the recycled aggregates can be used in both base course and the surface

There are many opportunities for businesses to use recycled and secondary aggregates. Recycled aggregates can be used in a variety of construction applications, such as: bituminous (asphalt) road construction ; ground improvements; earths cuttings and embankments; utilities reinstatement; shallow foundations; shallow and deep foundations; buildings residential and industrial; Recycled

Using recycled aggregates instead of extracted aggregates would qualify as post-consumer. Because concrete is an assembly, its recycled content should be calculated as a percentage of recycled material on a mass basis. Credit can also be obtained for Construction Waste Management. It is awarded based on diverting at least 50 percent by mass of construction, demolition, and land clearing waste
This report reviews the various types of aggregates and their potential for use in concrete and/or road construction materials.
Recycled aggregates come from leftover construction materials e.g. it might be concrete from a building that has been knocked down. Years ago, this concrete would have been classed as waste and taken to landfill, but now with our technology we are able to recycle these materials to be used in other construction projects.
Use of recycled aggregate up to 30% does not affect the functional requirements of the structure as per the findings of the test results. Various tests conducted on recycled aggregates and results compared with natural aggregates are satisfactory as per IS 2386. Due to use of recycled aggregate in construction, energy & cost of transportation of natural resources & excavation is significantly
Recycled Aggregate can be used in the following constructions. Can be used for constructing gutters, pavements etc. Large pieces of crushed aggregate can be used for building revetments which in turn is very useful in controlling soil erosion. Recycled concrete rubbles can be used as coarse aggregate
Construction aggregate, or simply aggregate, is a broad category of coarse- to medium-grained particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates.Aggregates are the most mined materials in the world. Aggregates are a component of composite materials such as concrete and asphalt concrete; the aggregate serves as
