Master's Degree Project: Recycled Aggregate in Concrete
- Mixing experimental concrete: "how do we know when it's ready?"
This is my Master's research on recycled polystyrene used as an aggregate in concrete. The experiment include four mixes: control, 7.5% experimental aggregate, 12.5% experimental aggregate, and 17.5% experimental aggregate by volume. After mixing, the samples are left to cure and are weighed and compression tested at 14, 28, 56 and 70 days.
