Precast landscape furniture

Industrial experience of self-compacting concrete with recycled aggregate

The use of recycled aggregates (RA) in structural concrete has been mainly limited to applications with low both mechanical and aesthetic requirements. Likewise, the maximum amount of RA that can be used in the concrete dosage is also limited by the standards. In this paper, a new self-compacting fibre reinforced concrete with 100 % of recycled coarse aggregate is presented. The production feasibility has been proven by means of an experimental program carried out in a precast plant. This novel material has been used to produce precast landscape furniture with excellent results in terms of aesthetic and mechanical performance.
