Abstract

Summary Although Britain is relatively rich in natural aggregate reserves, planning approvals to develop new quarries are running at about half the rate of aggregate extraction. This paper reports on a property study of crushed concrete and demolition debris with a view to using these materials in construction instead of natural aggregate. One of the objects of the research, on which this paper reports, was to accumulate data which would be a basis for the production of a British Standard for recycled materials in construction.
