In today’s world, renovation and demolition is very common. This creates an aggregate waste. One can recycle this waste. Most of the waste that is generated from demolition of structures is dumped in landfills to reclaim land. These create a waste which contain concrete, bricks and other construction material which is of no use. By gathering all these waste and recycled it. The recycled concrete aggregate is created. Transport costs is very high that’s make it even worse. Therefore, recycling of RCA (Recycled Concrete Aggregate) is eco-friendly, which reduces the harvesting of Natural concrete and that aggregate might be used for the production of concrete for new construction. Recycled Aggregates Concrete uses demolition concrete and burned clay masonry structures as aggregate. In this research work the demolition waste is used in concrete and the properties were discussed using Compressive strength test, Flexural strength test, Split tensile test with 0, 30, 60 and 100 percent RAC. © 2022 MIM Research Group.
