Abstract: This paper addresses waste disposal through recycling; tile chips, crushed scallop shells, or
crushed roofing tiles were mixed into concrete, and compressive strength was tested. The
experiment was carried out in three parts.
Series 1 measured the compressive strength and the static elastic modulus of concrete
containing tile chips. That replaced 30% to 100% of the volume of the coarse and fine
aggregate. The results showed that compressive strength increased as the proportion of tile
chips was increased.
Series 2 measured the compressive strength of porous concrete containing crushed scallop
shells that replaced 50% to 100% of the volume of the coarse aggregate. The results showed
that compressive strength decreased as the percentage of crushed scallop shells was
increased.
Series 3 measured the compressive strength and the static elastic modulus of concrete
containing crushed roofing tile material that replaced 20% to 100% of the volume of the
coarse aggregate. The results showed that compressive strength was increased when the
percentage of roofing tile material was 20% to 60% of the volume of the coarse aggregate.
