Abstract: An investigation was conducted on the flexural behavior of recycled concrete beams after freeze-thaw cycles. The study focused on the effect of the freezing-thawing cycles on the ultimate bearing capacity and stiffness of recycled concrete beams. In this paper, Four recycled concrete beams with 100% recycled coarse aggregate substitution were tested after 0, 25, 50, 75 times of freezing-thawing cycles, respectively. Experimental results show that freezing-thawing cycles have little effect on the ultimate bearing capacity of recycled concrete beams but the stiffness of recycled concrete beams decreased with the increase of the freezing-thawing cycles.
