The performances of RCA is mainly influenced by the adhered mortar of RCA: the higher the amount of adhered mortar, the higher the porosity and water absorption, implying lower durable mortars and concretes prepared with RCA than those prepared with normal aggregate [16, 17].
The total replacement of fine RCA to the normal aggregate produces a decrease in compressive, splitting tensile, and flexural strengths of about 14, 6, and 23%, respectively.
If normal aggregate and pores are concentrated in the particular area, concrete cannot reflect the effect of magnetite and steel powder.
The compressive strength reduction can be attributed, mainly, to the replacement of normal aggregate by a lower quality aggregate.
The recycled aggregates show higher water absorption compared with conventional normal aggregates and have low specific gravity.
