Experimental Study on the Behaviour of Concrete by Using Recycled Aggregates and Enhancing Its Self Healing Properties by Using Bacteria

Authors(3) :-Neha Rupawate, Shweta Yadav, Mukul Patil

Concrete is a vital construction material. However, the continuous extraction of coarse aggregate has led to decrease in quantity of primary and quality aggregates. Recycling concrete wastes will lead to reduction in landfill spaces and preserves natural resources. Not only that, concrete which is a brittle material tends to crack which exposes the reinforcement to atmosphere which in turn induce problems and affect the structural integrity of the structure. Self-Healing concrete in general rectifies these flaws. The strength properties will be compared with the conventional concrete after the curing period of 7, 14 and 28 days by partially replacing coarse aggregate by recycled aggregates for a percentage of 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%. The grade of concrete used in this project is M20. The bacteria Bacillus Subtilis of concentration 105cells/ml of mixing water is used.
