Abstract

The reuse of waste recycled concrete from harsh environments has become a research hotspot in the field of construction. This study investigated the repair effect of carbonation treatment on second-generation recycled fine aggregate (SRFA) obtained from recycled fine aggregate concrete (RFAC) subjected to freeze-thaw (FT) cycles. Before and after carbonation, the properties of SRFA were evaluated. Carbonated second-generation recycled fine aggregate (CSRFA) at five substitution rates (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) to replace SRFA was used to prepare carbonated second-generation recycled fine aggregate concrete (CSRFAC). The water absorption, porosity and mechanical properties of CSRFAC were tested, and its frost-resisting durability was evaluated. The results showed after carbonation treatment, the physical properties of SRFA was improved and met the requirements of II aggregate. The micro-hardness of the interfacial transition zone and attached mortar in CSRFA was 50.5% and 31.2% higher than that in SRFA, respectively. With the increase of CSRFA replacement rate, the water absorption and porosity of CSRFAC gradually decreased, and the mechanical properties and frost resistance of CSRFAC were gradually improved. Carbonation treatment effectively repairs the damage of SRFA caused by FT cycles and improves its application potential.
