Properties of Recycled Concrete and Coconut Shell Aggregate Concrete: An Experimental Investigation

With natural aggregate concrete, the basic features of recycled and coconut shell aggregate concrete are investigated. The current study’s focus is the examination of recycled aggregate and coconut shell aggregate at 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% partial replacement of coarse aggregate in the production of concrete. The goal of the inquiry is to compare the effects of varying quantities of waste aggregate on the characteristics of concrete. Recycled aggregate is a non-biodegradable substance. Thus, the use of this form of technology would limit the amount of waste that ends up in a landfill while also reducing the depletion of fresh raw resources. Coconut shell, a byproduct of agriculture, can also be utilised as aggregate to prevent environmental harm. The primary benefit of coconut shell aggregate is cost savings (up to 40%) owing to self-weight decrease.
