Abstract
Recycled concrete is an environmental green material for recycling construction and demolished wastes. Numerous studies performed on recycled concrete indicated that it had poor characteristics of workability, strength and durability attribute to the inferior mechanical properties of recycled aggregates. A wide range of investigations had been carried out to improve the mechanical properties of recycled concrete. For better manifesting green concepts, waste glass-fiber composite tablets, recycled PET fibers and organic sisal fibers were used in this study to enhance the mechanical properties of recycled concrete. The experimental results show that the smooth surface of composite tablets may be weak points to degrade its compressive strength. PET fibers and sisal fibers can improve the ductility of recycled concrete obviously.
