This article deals with an experimental study concerning the development of concrete mixtures with significant ecological benefits. The studied concrete mixtures were based on blast-furnace cement, with an additional application of supplementary cementitious materials—fly ash, metakaolin, and silica fume and fluidized fly ash. Coarse aggregate in the form of crushed concrete was applied for all studied concrete mixtures. The experimental program was primarily focused on the assessment of the durability properties of the studied mixtures in terms of mechanical tests, absorption tests, chloride migration coefficient tests, water penetration tests, and accelerated carbonation depth tests. The results obtained showed good potential for waste materials in durable concrete production. The studied mixtures, with incorporated supplementary cementitious materials, exceeded the level of high performance concrete (HPC) in terms of mechanical properties. Such modification of the binding system also significantly contributed to an increase in durability properties; however, mixtures with the fluidized fly ash application exhibited reduced resistance to carbonation.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Renewable Materials (JRM) publishes high quality peer reviewed original research on macromolecules and additives obtained from renewable/biobased resources. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, JRM introduces cutting-edge research on biobased monomers, polymers, additives (both organic and inorganic), their blends and composites. It showcases both fundamental aspects and new applications for renewable materials. The fundamental theories and topics pertain to chemistry of biobased monomers, macromoners and polymers, their structure-property relationship, processing using sustainable methods, characterization (spectroscopic, morphological, thermal, mechanical, and rheological), bio and environmental degradation, and life cycle analysis. Demonstration of use of renewable materials and composites in applications including adhesives, bio and environmentally degradable structures, biomedicine, construction, electrical & electronics, mechanical, mendable and self-healing systems, optics, packaging, recycling, shape-memory, and stimulus responsive systems will be presented.
