In this paper an experimental program has been carried out in order to compare compressive strength fc and elastic static modulus Ec of recycled concrete with ultrasonic waves velocity Vp, to establish the possibility of employing nondestructive ultrasonic tests to qualify recycled concrete. 9 mix of concrete with different substitution percentage of recycled aggregates instead of natural ones and 27 cylindrical samples have been made. At first ultrasonic tests have been carried out on cylindrical samples, later elastic static modulus Ec and compressive strength fc have been experimentally evaluated. The dynamic elastic modulus Ed has been determined in function of ultrasonic wave velocity Vp; furthermore the correlations among Ed, Ec, fc e Vp have been determined. It has been demonstrated that ultrasonic tests are suitable for evaluating different deformative and resisting concrete performances even when variations are small.
