Abstract: The paper deals with the influence of recycled aggregate, gained by crushing hardened concrete that was previously used in construction, on the properties of concrete mixture in fresh and hardened state. Selective demolition of the RC structure was used to produce concrete rubbles. As reference concrete mixture, ordinary concrete OC used in the initial phase of the RRT+ program in the framework of COST Action TU1404 was selected. For the preconditioning of coarse recycled aggregate the same procedure as for the coarse natural aggregate used in the OC concrete was followed. Type and content of the SP and W/C ratio were adjusted in order to provide adequate workability. The obtained results show that concrete mixtures with the recycled concrete aggregate can possess adequate properties in fresh and hardened state, even in case of full replacement of natural aggregate by crushed concrete grains, if highly efficient PCE SP is used.
