Abstract: This paper presents the shrinkage cracking characteristics of cement treated demolition waste as a road base layer, which was produced by using recycled crushed concrete and masonry aggregates from construction and demolition waste (CDW). The developed method to estimate the crack pattern was based on the structural properties of cement treated demolition waste measured in the laboratory and the average climatic conditions recorded in the Netherlands. The influences of four mixture variables (masonry content, moisture content, cement content and degree of compaction) on the crack pattern were investigated. Results show that the proposed estimation model can predict the crack pattern of cement treated demolition waste comparable to the crack spacing observed in the field. The masonry variation in CDW is a key factor to determine its shrinkage cracking characteristics.
