The compaction behavior of recycled aggregates mixed with 5% to 25% sand, cement and brick was evaluated by Melbouci (2009), who made the following observations: (1) addition of 10% by mass of cement to RCA, leads to the maximum dry density and a low optimum moisture content; (2) Addition to RCA of crushed brick particles having sizes lower than 0.
