A review carried out has shown that recycled aggregate is suitable for the production of concrete for structural applications. Recycled aggregate is majorly used for secondary purpose due to the adhering mortar which renders it inferior compared to its companion natural aggregate. Efforts have been made by previous researchers to overcome the negative impacts of the attached mortar through thermal and chemical processes, but these techniques have disadvantageous effects. An ongoing research at Coventry University, United Kingdom, proposes a composite material consisting of recycled aggregate and steel fibres in the production of steel fibre-reinforced recycled aggregate concrete. In the study, a mix proportioning technique dubbed “Equivalent Mortar Volume” method, which treats recycled aggregate as a heterogeneous material, is adopted.
