Abstract
Concrete is a vital construction material. However, the continous extraction of coarse aggregate has led to decrease in quantity of primary and quality aggregatges. Recycling concrete wastes will lead to reduction in landfill spaces and preserves natural resources. Not only that, concrete which is a brittle material tends to crack which exposes the reinforcement to atmosphere which in turn induce problems and affect the structural integrity of the structure. Self-Healing concrete in general rectifies these flaws. The strength properties will be compared with the conventional concrete after the curing period of 7, 14 and 28 days by partially replacing coarse aggregate by recycled aggregates for a percentage of 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%. The grade of concrete used in this project is M25. And also to add Bacteria Bacillus Subtilis is to be used in this project. The investigation was carried for workability, Compressive test, Split tensile test and Flexural test.
