Abstract: Some results of the experimental investigation on the sulfate resistance of concrete with
recycled concrete aggregate (RAC) immersed in 5% Na2SO4 and 5% MgSO4 solutions for
periods of 3 and 6 months are presented in the paper. For concrete production natural river
fine aggregate and coarse recycled concrete aggregate were used. The effect of water to
cement ratio and cement type on sulfate resistance of RAC were investigated. Two water to
cement ratios were varied (0.38 and 0.55) and two types of common cement were used (CEM
I 42,5R and CEM III 32,5N LH/SR). Sulfate resistance was monitored through change in
compressive strength and volume change. Compressive strength was determined on cylinders
100x100mm, while length change was monitored on prisms 100mmx100mmx500mm. It
was observed that both methods show results that lead to same assessment of sulfate
resistance. Recycled aggregate concrete could achieve satisfactory sulfate resistance if
appropriate type of cement and water to cement ratio are chosen.
