Demolition waste materials mainly consist of concrete\ud and bricks and arise from the demolition of existing\ud structures and buildings. Environmental and economical\ud reasons make their recycling necessary, but to date, their\ud use is curtailed due to the lack of research in determining\ud their properties. This paper reports on the efforts to\ud understand the behavioural characteristics of three types\ud of recycled material to determine their potential for\ud engineering fill applications. For this purpose, their\ud physical and mechanical characteristics were extensively\ud investigated. Two types of crushed concrete, one\ud obtained straight after demo...
