  • Abstract

    This article presents the influence of the Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA) on the mechanical properties of self-compacting fly ash concrete (M30 Grade). The RCA from local construction demolition site were employed as a replacement for natural coarse aggregate (0% - 30%) in self-compacting concrete (SCC). The Viscosity modifying material used in this study was Class F fly ash. The results indicate that recycled concrete aggregate can be replaced by an optimal 25% replacement percentage in the manufacture of SCC without significantly affecting strength and durability.
