The main goal of this research was to evaluate the effects of using recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) of an average quality as a 50% replacement for natural coarse aggregate. A total of 26 concrete mixtures were prepared, 13 containing RCA as a 50% of coarse aggregate and the same number of mixes only with natural aggregate (NA). The results show the influence of the RCA incorporation on concretes for the same w/c ratio. Both mechanical and durability parameters of the concretes made with recycled aggregate are worse, and the differences increase for low w/c ratio. Despite the reduction of these parameters in relation to concretes with only NA, both mechanical and durability test results obtained for concrete series with RCA can be described as good.
