Concrete Made of Building Demolition Waste

Paper by CRISTOFOLETTI CUPO from ISCR 7th 1994 Vienna Austria

In the field of research on secondary materials, an experimental study on the re-use of building demolition waste has been conducted. These materials will be used in Italy, further to decree-laws and regulations, drawn in compliance with the rules of the Community Law 1 9 w93h, ich has already been accepted by the Italian Parliament. Building demolition wastes have been used as aggregates for concrete manufacturing with a good mechanical strength. The use of specific fluidifying agents has allowed to overcome the difficulties of mixing and processing, due to the intrinsic porosity of the materials.
