An Introduction to Asphalt Concrete Pavement Recycling

the existing asphalt concrete, crushing it if necessary, and mixing it in a hot-mix plant with new aggregate, asphalt, and recycling agent, when required. The hot-mix recycled asphalt concrete can be designed for use in all types of pavements. Crushed portland cement concrete has also been used as aggregate for hot recycled mixtures.

Recycled Plastics as Coarse Aggregate for Structural Concrete

The use of plastic is increasing day by day, although steps were taken to reduce its consumption. This creates substantial garbage every day which is much unhealthy. A healthy and sustainable reuse of plastics offers a host of advantages. The suitability of recycled plastics as coarse aggregate in concrete and its advantages are discussed here.

Study of Waste Plastic Mix Concrete with Plasticizer

The fresh and hardened properties of waste virgin plastic mix concrete have been studied (CUR Report 1991). A number of concrete mixes were prepared in which sand was partially replaced by waste plastic flakes in varying percentages by volume. Waste plastic mix concrete with and without superplasticizer was tested at room temperature. Forty-eight cube samples were moulded for compressive ...
