Use of Steel slag in Bituminous Road Construction Prof.Mithun Sawant, Yash Lokhande, Pratik Lokhande, Karan Kute, Sajjad Masi, Swapnil Khutwad Civil Department, DYPIEMR, Akurdi, Pune -----***----- Keywords — Steel slag, bitumen, ductility test 1. The use of slag in road construction can be traced back to the very early days when the Romans used iron slag as a pavement material in parts of the famous Appian Way. Many researchers have investigated the use of steel slag as an aggregate in the design of asphalt concrete for the road construction. Many researchers have investigated the use of steel slag as an aggregate in the design of asphalt concrete for the road construction. Use of blast-furnace slag's as • Sand and gravel for the construction of road beds, • Basic filler in asphalt–concrete mixtures for the construction of road and airport coatings, • Unroasted cement (binder) for reinforcing roadways and • Preparing slow-setting concrete. This paper presents an effective way of utilizing the steel slag aggregate (SSA), which is a byproduct of the steel manufacturing process, in road construction. As a result, a large area of land is being sacrificed for the disposal of this useful resource. Use of Blast Furnace Slag in Road Construction … INTRODUCTION The iron and steel slag that is generated as a by product of iron and steel … The Institute is collaborating with Tarmac, British Steel, Glass Futures and PWS road building services. Although the construction industry does use some slag as an aggregate, most is simply discarded. This extensive literature review discusses the worldwide utilization of ferrous slag and applications in all sectors of civil … The TRL has since recommended production of slag aggregate, certification of slag products by the authorities including MME and Ashghal, development of case studies and the inclusion in the next update to the Qatar construction specification. Desirable properties of road aggregates are its strength, hardness, toughness, durability, shape of aggregate and adhesion with bitumen. The UK steel industry generates thousands of tonnes of coarse steelmaking slag per year, which could be used a high-grade road surfacing material. In this study, a typical steel slag was collected from an M/s Jindal Steel Iindustry Pvt.Ltd Sinnar MIDC, (M.S) in India and its feasibility for use in different layers of road construction was investigated. Ferrous slag is currently underutilized. Doing so would both offset the cost of restoring abandoned mine areas, as well as decrease steel manufacturers’ current … Steelmaking slag is currently crushed and used in the road construction process, but its currently approved 60 PSV level of skid resistance limits use on UK roads accordingly. Slag road construction trials were conducted at a Qatar Steel site in 2016. Such slag is a valuable raw material for preparation of macadam materials and mineral binders serving as a base for asphalt concrete mixtures and manufacturing of cement emulsions, which are widely used in road paving. Electric arc furnace slag (EAFS) is a co-product of steel making process. However, slag could be used to treat acid soils or acid mine drainage. Despite this, a large amount of steel slag generated from steel industries is disposed of in stockpiles to date. The best management option for this by product is its recycling. In our study we use electric arc furnace slag as coarse aggregate for pavement construction. MORE FROM MATERIALS To this end, the Materials Processing Institute (MPI), along with industry and research partners, has secured a grant worth … To improve its Geotechnical engineering properties, the Steel Slag material was mechanically stabilized with locally The research focused on the use of different types of slag in road construction in Ukraine. Iron slag was first produced commercially in Australia at Mittagong, NSW, in 1848 and the slag known locally as Mittagong Stone,was used for road construction. A comprehensive study was conducted to characterize SSA and determine the potential for its use in road bases.
