Recycling waste concrete into road pavement aggregate

Richardson, Brian Joseph Edward (1995) Recycling waste concrete into road pavement aggregate. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


The use of recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) as a road pavement material in Australia is relatively recent and confined mainly to Victoria and New South Wales. Samples of RCA were taken at six, monthly intervals from a local producer of RCA. A range of tests was carried out to provide initial information as to the suitability of RCA as a road pavement material. The results were then compared to a newly written specification for the material. Comparisons were also made with local natural aggregates. In addition, laboratory samples of RCA were produced from concrete with strengths of 32MPa and 80MPa.
