This paper presents a study with concretes produced with natural aggregates, recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) and waste porcelain aggregates (WPA). The study analyzed the influence of recycled aggregates in the mechanical properties of conventional concretes and evaluated the difference between measured and predicted values of elasticity modulus. The incorporation of WPA in concrete showed better mechanical results compared to the concretes produced with RCA. Measured elasticity moduli were lower than moduli predicted by NBR 6118:2014 and fib Model Code 2010, while measured results were greater than values predicted by Eurocode 2:2004 and ACI 318:2014, as expected, which indicated the safety of the latter two standards.
