Abstract

Adopting a holistic three-step literature review workflow, a total of 1,639 journal articles were used in this study as the literature sample related to recycled aggregate (RA). This study summarized the existing research topics focusing on RA, gaps of current research, suggestions for promoting RA usage, and research directions for future work. A research framework was also proposed linking the existing research themes into trends in RA research. This review work serves as a foundation work to bridge the gap between scientific research and industry practice, as well as to guide the directions in RA-related academic work using an interdisciplinary approach.
