Recycled concrete aggregates are mainly used for road construction, but another interesting application would be their incorporation into concrete mixes. So far, such an application is hindered by the loss of mechanical properties of recycled aggregates concrete. However, through an efficient crushing technique, recycled concrete can be a beneficial addition. This study deals with properties (particle size distribution, density, thermal treatment reaction, oxide and mineralogical composition) of a large number of recycled concrete fractions, obtained through three crushing methods.
