Abstract: In recent years, sustainable construction materials are highly recommended in construction projects due to reduce the degradation of natural resources. An experimental investigation with varying percentages of coarse recycled concrete aggregate was conducted on self-compacting concrete. The primary goal was to explore the suitability and impact of coarse recycled aggregate in concrete fresh generation. The demand for building products has risen tremendously in latest years, so the quantity of building and demolition waste has increased, placing enormous stress to the atmosphere. The use of recycled aggregate in concrete is a suitable solution to extend the lifetime of natural resources and thereby lead to sustainable developments in construction field. In this investigation, SCC is modified by recycled coarse aggregate (RCA) in various percentages of natural coarse aggregate (NCA) substitutes from 0 percent to 100 percent with a 20 percent increase. Durability and the mechanical properties of modified SCC was determined. From the results it is revealed that the substitution of RCA in the place of NCA significantly improved the durability properties.
