Proposed Research Work
9 (i) Project Title: EFFECTIVE USE OF BUILDING DEMOLITION WASTE IN CONVENTIONAL
CONCRETE

(ii) Introduction
Concrete is the worlds second most consumed material after water, and its widespread use is the basis
for urban development. It is estimated that billion tones of concrete are manufactured each year. Twice as
much concrete is used in construction around the world when compared to the total of all other building
materials combined. The construction and demolition waste (C&DW) have recycling schemes to avoid
dumping to landfill, as suitable landfill sites are becoming scarce particularly in heavily populated
countries the reuse of hardened concrete as aggregate is a proven technology. It can be crushed and reused
as a partial replacement for natural aggregate in new concrete construction. The hardened concrete can be
sourced either from the demolition of concrete structures at the end of their life or from leftover fresh
concrete which is purposefully left to harden. Alternatively fresh concrete which is leftover or surplus to
site requirements can be recovered by separating out the wet fines fraction and the coarse aggregate for
reuse in concrete manufacture.
.
This research mainly focuses on comparing the properties of conventional cement concrete (CCV)
prepared from naturally obtained aggregates and recycled concrete (RCA) made from recycled aggregates
under different tests such as tensile and flexure and use as low strength concrete or a high strength
concrete.
(iii) OBJECTIVES - Project Significance / Relevance with ongoing academic activities

The main objective of this research project was to understand the strength properties of recycled
aggregate concrete. The following is an outline of the specific objectives of this research:
1. To determine the strength properties of concrete recycled aggregate and to increase its
strength by adding Mineral admixtures obtained such as fly ash with a specified dosage.
2. To determine whether that the strength of recycled aggregate concrete is effected by the
age of Demolition waste

In this Research, the effects of varying percentage of recycled aggregate in conventional concrete
on its compressive strength are going to investigate. The goal is to achieve a Maximum
compressive strength without addition of chemical admixtures. This will be accomplished
through extensive experiments on test cubes/cylinders casted for determining strength.
Experiments include compression tests, flexural tests, Workability tests & permeability of
concrete
EXPECTED OUTCOME
In order to achieve the best possible strength of concrete
1. The approximate recycled aggregate percentage is known for replacement of natural
aggregate in conventional concrete.
2. Whether the effect on steam cured aggregates will help in increasing the strength
3. What is the dosage of natural admixture helps in enhancing the strength
(iv) METHODOLOGY
In the preliminary stage it is essential to know whether the replacement of RCA in
concrete is inappropriate or acceptable. Three types of aggregates are used in this project which
includes natural coarse aggregate, natural fine aggregate and RCA. Natural coarse aggregate
used with maximum size of 20 mm. Natural fines aggregate used is river sand and RCA used is
crushed concrete from tested concrete cubes. Tests are carried out on these aggregates to
determine the, impact value of aggregate and abrasion test. After testing, a mix design is
produced in accordance with the properties obtained from test results. Concrete is then produced
with replacement of 0%-100% of RCA as well as 100% replacement of saturated surface dry
(SSD) RCA with the same mix proportion. Tests conducted on these concretes include the slump
of fresh concrete. For the hardened concrete, compressive strength was determined. Tests were
conducted at the ages of 7, 14 and 28 days and the results at each testing age are reported as an
average. The engineering properties of the RAC were also compared to those of the reference
concrete.
After determining the appropriate percentage of use of Recycled aggregate in conventional
concrete its also tested for the use of steam cured recycled aggregates and once again the
recycled aggregates are mixed with natural admixtures and compare the strength to what extent
the strength of concrete is enhanced
