Abstract: Flexural properties of reinforced recycled concrete (RRC) beams are investigated
experimentally. Their parameters are water-cement ratio, type, combination of aggregates and
usage of expansive additive. Flexural properties of RRC beams, i.e. cracking moment,
maximum crack spacing, maximum crack width, deflection under serviceable load and plastic
deflection are discussed. Experimental results indicate the mechanics-based possibility of
utilizing recycled concrete for reinforced concrete structures under the proper design as well
as within the proper limit of application.
