Abstract: The effects of recycled glass (RG) cullet on fresh and hardened properties of self-compacting concrete (SCC) were investigated. RG was used to replace river sand (in proportions of 10%, 20% and 30%), and 10 mm granite (5%, 10% and 15%) in making the SCC concrete mixes. Fly ash was used in the concrete mixes to suppress the potential alkali-silica reaction. The experimental results showed that the slump flow, blocking ratio, air content of the RG-SCC mixes increased with increasing recycled glass content. The compressive strength, tensile splitting strength and static modulus of elasticity of the RG-SCC mixes were decreased with an increase in recycled glass aggregate content. Moreover, the resistance to chloride ion penetration increased and the drying shrinkage of the RG-SCC mixes decreased when the recycled glass content increased. The results showed that it is feasible to produce SCC with recycled glass cullet.
