demolished concrete recycled fine aggregates admixtures recycled aggregate mortars mathematical model
In order to expand the engineering application of recycle aggregate mortars(RAM)with aggregates from demolished concretes, the models for the properties of RAM and the replacement rate of these recycled fine aggregates were proposed. First, different kinds of mathematical models for the basic properties(compressive strength, water retention rate, and consistency loss)of RAM with two kinds of admixtures, thickening powders(TP)and self-made powdery admixtures(SSCT)designed for RAM, and the replacement rates were established, while the average relative errors and relative standard errors of these models were calculated. Additionally, the models and their error analyses for the curves of drying shrinkage and curing time of RAM+SSCT at different replacement rates were put forward. The results show that polynomial functions should be used to calculate the basic properties of RAM+TP and RAM+SSCT at different replacement rates. In addition, polynomial functions are the most optimal models for the sharp shrinkage sections in the curves of drying shrinkage-curing time of RAM+SSCT, while exponential functions should be used as the models for the slow shrinkage sections and steady shrinkage sections.
