Abstract: The use of recycled aggregates in zero slump concrete constitutes an important option to the management of construction and deconstruction waste; This concrete can be used like Roller Compacted Concrete RCC the required amount of recycled aggregates on pavements may be significant and its quality does not need to be very high. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the methodology to obtain good quality pavements using recycled aggregates.
Factors such as optimal humidity, compaction level and minimum requirements of quality of recycled aggregate are being evaluated in order to study their final effect on the pavement produced. As a quality parameter, the effect of the recycled aggregates impurities in the final product will be also analyzed. The goal is to establish a selection and classification criteria of recycled aggregates that will be useful to found dosages to make roller compacted pavements according with the needs established in the design stage.
