In the past two decade, researchers have studied the flexural, shear and bond behaviour of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) beams. This work intends to analyze the behaviour of RAC beams under pure torsion, despite the lack of information on its behaviour under pure torsion. The coarse recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) extracted from construction and demolition (C & D) waste was used to replace natural coarse aggregates (NCA) in 0 %, 50 %, and 100 % ratio. Their recycling could help preserve the environment and promote sustainability through solid waste management. Six beams, each of size 150 x 250 x 1800 mm were prepared and tested. To detects minor deformation and to achieve the same strength through the out-of-plane direction, 250 mm inbuilt cantilever projections were provided on opposite faces of the beams at a span of 1000 mm along the longitudinal axis. The ultimate torsional capacity of tested beams was lower by 7.41 %, 8.60 % and 13.58 % than ATENA-3D (FEM) for 0 %, 50 % and 100 % RCA. The change in the replacement ratio of aggregate has a low impact on the ultimate torque and angle of twist. Based on the experimental and analytical results, it was established that the torque resistance capacity of the RAC beam was reduced as the % of RCA increased. Similar crack patterns and failure behaviour were observed in RAC and NAC beams in both studies. Therefore, it is practically possible to apply RAC in structural applications under pure torsional loading.
