Abstract

Construction and demolition (C&D) materials constitute a major proportion of waste materials present in landfills worldwide. With the scarcity of high-quality quarry aggregates, alternative materials, such as C&D materials, are increasingly being considered as a replacement for traditional road-construction materials, particularly as the sustainable usage of these C&D materials has significant environmental benefits. In this research, an extensive laboratory evaluation was carried out to determine the engineering properties of cement-treated C&D materials. The C&D materials investigated were reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), recycled concrete aggregate (RCA), and crushed brick (CB). The geot..
