Abstract
The main objective of this experimental work is to analyse the effect of recycled aggregates (RA) on the basis of the study of the various qualities of the physical, mechanical and durability properties of High Performance Concrete (HPC). Three coarse RA sourced from parent concretes of 100, 60 and 40 MPa, one coarse mixed recycled aggregate and one fine ceramic waste aggregate were used as replacement for natural aggregates. On the basis of the findings of our research it was determined that th...
