The Role of Aggregate in Concrete ... To produce good quality, durable concrete containing a portion of recycled concrete aggregate often requires trial concrete mixes and close monitoring of the properties of the old recycled concrete, with mix adjustments made, as needed.
This means that concrete containing sandstone aggregate has a higher shrinkage rate—about twice that of concrete containing granite, basalt, or limestone. The higher the water content is, the greater is the amount of shrinkage from drying.
Aggregates containing certain constituents can react with alkali hydroxides in concrete.The reactivity is potentially harmful only when it produces significant expansion (Mather 1975).This alkali-aggre- ... • In many concrete mixtures, the alkali content of the concrete is low enough to control harmful ASR.
Abstract—This paper presents results of compressive strength, capillary water absorption, and density tests conducted on concrete containing recycled aggregate (RCA) which is obtained from structural waste generated by the construction industry in Turkey.
This paper aims at predicting chloride penetration in the concrete containing magnetite aggregates by using Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Inference System. The study studied the effect of aggregation types on chloride penetration at 90 days by considering four aggregation types for fine aggregates
They don't contain the aggregate (stones or gravel) that's necessary to make a pour thicker than about 3/4 in. You're likely to find more than one kind of concrete mix on the shelf, including "fast setting," "high early strength" and "fiber reinforced."
Usually, concrete with high contents of aggregates displays shrinkage on a smaller scale. Speaking about aggregates, aggregates with a higher modulus of elasticity and with a lot of rough edges (not smooth) is much more resistant to the shrinkage deformation .
Concrete contains water, portland cement, graded aggregate, and sand. Technically, the sand is just a finer type of aggregate. The cement, water, and sand form a paste that fills voids and binds the aggregate together.
Recycled concrete aggregates contain not only the original aggregates, but also hydrated cement paste. This paste reduces the specific gravity and increases the porosity compared to similar aggregates.

Jul 03, 2007· Concrete containing RCA can be batched, mixed, delivered, placed, and finished using methods commonly used for concrete containing aggregate. The primary caution for production is dealing with the increased water demand of RCA, even though proper processing should have removed the fine material prior to concrete production.

Concrete with stone aggregates performed much better than mixes with gravel aggregates. Ternary mixes displayed higher concrete strengths. Fuller-optimized aggregate concrete mixes fell in the center of the rankings for compressive strength.
The physical properties of concrete containing plastic aggregates replaced by volume at different percentages of 10, 30, and 50 percent were studied. The results showed that concrete mixes containing post-consumer plastic aggregates are flowable and have acceptable strengths.

Concrete, usually Portland cement concrete, is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time—most frequently a lime-based cement binder, such as Portland cement, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement.
