Abstract: The use of recycled aggregates in the manufacture of concrete is increasing significantly mainly due to the need for an environmental solution to this type of material. Therefore, numerous investigations have been performed to study the mechanical properties and durability in concrete made with recycled aggregates from different origins (concrete or mixed C&DW). However, the use of these materials has not been very much studied in their application in lightweight concrete. Due to the current increasing trend in the use of lightweight concrete for producing pre-manufactured elements in the building sector, it would be interesting to study the mechanical and durability properties of lightweight concrete manufactured with recycled mixed aggregates. Therefore, in this work, a study of this type of concrete has been made with recycled mixed and concrete aggregates to evaluate the mechanical properties.
