Multi-functional Concrete with Recycled Aggregates consists of chapters covering multiple aspects of sustainable concrete materials, inclusive of engineering, environmental, policy, and management factors. With contributing authors worldwide from a variety of disciplines bridged by the theme of sustainability of concrete, this book aims to provide an overview of existing research and practices of traditional recycled aggregate concrete; introduce the latest studies of high-performance concrete adopting recycled aggregates from C&D wastes; disseminate the latest findings of multifunctional recycled aggregate concrete by achieving the waste reuse while realizing other environmental sustainability goals; and link the multipurpose sustainable concrete technical development into the C&D waste management.

Key Features

  • Features state-of-the-art research and practices on adopting construction and demolition (C&D) wastes for production of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC)
  • Discusses the managerial aspects of C&D waste management by promoting the usage of different types of RAC from technical, policy, and managerial perspectives
  • Covers the entire waste reuse model to enhance the reuse and recycling rate of C&D wastes
  • Includes recent developments in high-performance RAC and other new functions in RAC (e.g., pervious RAC designed to absorb air pollutants) are also presented
  • Covers state-of-the art research and developments in engineering applications and properties of RAC, such as pervious RAC, self-cleaning RAC and High-performance RAC


Academic and industrial researchers, materials scientists and civil engineers who are working in the development of construction materials and utilization of waste and other fine by-products in the production of concrete
