Investigation of effects of rehydration of cement in recycled crushed concrete road base
MetadataShow full item record
This research investigates the methods controlling shrinkage cracking of Recycled Crushed Concrete (RCC) and RCC blended with two recycled aggregate types, namely, brick & tile and ferricrete, for road base whilst retaining the inherent strength of the base material. The strength tests on the various blends indicated that with the addition of brick & tile or ferricrete to RCC, the resulting materials remained "stiff'. In conclusion, using recycled materials can enhance heavy duty pavement behaviour.
