Waste in the construction industry has been the subject of several research projects around the world. Recently, there has been a growing interest in substituting alternative aggregate materials, largely as a potential use for recycled materials. While there is a lot of research on many different materials for aggregate substitutes (such as granulated coal ash, blast furnace slag or various solid wastes including fiberglass waste materials, granulated plastics, paper and wood products/wastes, etc.), the only two potentially viable alternatives to natural coarse aggregate are glass cullet and crushed old concrete. This study investigates the strength properties of the later alternative, which incorporates readily available concrete as an aggregate source for new concrete.
