Abstract
Due to the increase in the demolition of high strength concrete structures and the interest of precast concrete companies in being more competitive, it is necessary to analyse the use of recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) in high performance concrete (HPC). In this study, HPC were produced using 20%, 50% and 100% of RCA on substitution of natural coarse aggregates. Three types of RCA were used, they were produced crushing original concrete of 100, 60 and 40 MPa of compressive strength. The physi...
