Abstract


The paper presents possibility of usage of crushed clay bricks and roof tiles as an aggregate for concrete in precast concrete floor blocks. According to literature review, concrete with crushed brick and roof tiles as an aggregate has better thermal properties than regular concrete with natural aggregate. Applicability of concrete mixture for precast concrete blocks was tested regarding the requirements set in HRN EN 15037-2 Precast Concrete products – Beam and block floor systems – Part 2: Concrete blocks. Precast concrete blocks with crushed bricks and roof tiles were made and their mechanical properties after exposure to high temperature were tested. Based on experimental results, conclusions are made about usage of crushed bricks and roof tiles as partial replacement of natural aggregate in concrete for precast concrete blocks with improved resistance to high temperatures.
