Abstract

During recycling waste concrete, a large amount of waste concrete powder (WCP) is generated. However, efficient utilization of WCP remains an unresolved issue. This paper investigates the influences of WCP on the properties and hydration products of cement mortar containing fly ash (FA). This study used two different types of WCPs. One was made from an ordinary Portland cement mortar, and the other was derived from a Portland cement mortar. WCP replaced 10%, 20%, and 30% of FA. The water requirement, setting time, flow index, strength, hydration products, and microstructure of FA mortar incorporating WCP were investigated. Test results indicate that the WCP has no significant influence on the performances and hydration products of FA mortar. By adequately combining WCP and FA, the FA mortar with required performances could be reached.
