Book Description :

New Trends in Eco-efficient and Recycled Concrete describes different recycled materials that have been used in eco-efficient concrete, reviewing previous publications to identify the most effective recycled materials to be applied in concrete manufacture. New trends on eco-efficient concrete are presented, filling a gap in the market. Sections cover various recycled materials applied in concrete production, present the latest on the lifecycle analysis of recycled aggregate concrete, detail new trends in recycled aggregate concrete research, and finally, present updates on upscaling the use of recycled aggregate concrete and structural reliability. Focuses on new trends in recycled aggregate concrete and its applications (rather than the more subjective ‘sustainability’ aspects) Contains very important contributions from researchers in eco-efficient concrete, including Chi Sun Poon, Jorge de Brito, Valeria Corinaldesi, Francisco Agrela, etc. Presents a ‘one stop’ reference for a graduate course on sustainable construction

Book Description :

This book is dedicated to “High-Performance Eco-Efficient Concrete” and concrete fatigue behavior, more sustainable construction materials, capable of complying with quality standards and current innovation policies, aimed at saving natural resources and reducing global pollution. The development of self-compacting concretes with electric arc furnace slags is a further achievement. In addition, the technical and economic viability of using coarse recycled aggregates from crushed concrete in shotcrete, enhanced quality and reduced on-site construction time are the basic features of prefabricated bridge elements and systems, biomass bottom ash as aluminosilicate precursor and phosphogypsum were discussed. On the other hand, basalt fiber improving the mechanical properties and durability of reactive powder concrete, alkali-activated slag and high-volume fly ash and the potential of phosphogypsum as secondary raw material in construction industry, the effects of fly ash on the diffusion, bonding, and microproperties of chloride penetration in concrete were studied. Increasing amounts of sustainable concretes are being used as society becomes more aware of the environment. Finally, the circular economy as an economic model of production and consumption that involves reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling materials after their service life are presented in this book.

Book Description :

Carbonation is a major cause of concrete structure deterioration, leading to expensive maintenance and conservation operations. The eco-efficient construction agenda favors the increase of the use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) to reduce Portland cement's consumption and also the use of recycled aggregates concrete (RAC) in order to reduce the consumption of primary aggregates and to avoid landfill disposal of concrete waste. A wide range of literature has been published in the field of concrete carbonation related to the use of SCMs and/or RCA. Fowever, the different conditions used limit comparison, and in some cases contradictory findings are noted. Besides, since most investigations are based on the use of the phenolphthalein indicator, which provides a poor estimate of the real concrete carbonation depth, there is a high probability that past research could have underestimated the corrosion potential associated with concrete carbonation. This chapter reviews current knowledge on concrete carbonation addressing carbonation depth measurement and the use of SCMs and RAC.
