    Recycled Aggregate Concrete (RAC) as a sustainable material is gaining increasing importance in the construction industry. This book discusses properties, specifications, and applications of RAC and offers readers insight into current research and advances in the development and utilization of RAC. It shares information gathered about concretes that use RCA (Recycled Concrete Aggregate, a component of RAC), as well as findings and conclusions.

    This book:

    • Presents principles of RAC, including theories and experiments

    • Describes advanced behavior and properties

    • Covers specifications and codes

    • Highlights best practices

    • Summarizes the use of RAC in sustainable concrete construction

    • Features scientific findings, citations of reliable sources, conclusions, and recommendations that ensure the book is accessible to various levels of expertise

    This book will be useful for researchers, concrete scientists, technologists, practicing engineers, and advanced students interested in reusing construction waste for sustainable construction practices; it will help them strive toward meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
