Abstract:
This publication contains 11 papers which promote and encourage the use of recycled concrete and other materials in concrete construction, taken from presentations at the 2003 ACI Spring Convention in Vancouver, Canada. Specific subject areas include the global perspective, challenges and opportunities of concrete recycling, the barriers to recycling concrete in highway construction, and current practices in the European Union, Japan, and USA. This publication also contains research papers on the use of recycled glass as aggregates for architectural concrete, recycled scrap tire rubber, flowable slurry containing wood ash, recycled latex paint as an admixture, crushed stone dust in production of self-consolidating concrete, a new binder using thermally treated spent pot liners from aluminum smelters, and the durability of concrete containing recycled concrete as aggregates that had shown distress due to alkali-silica reaction.
