Abstract

A large number of steel plants have been set up in India and they are producing several million tonnes of iron and steel. However, the production of iron and steel is always associated with the generation of waste materials like air cooled slag, steel slag, granulated slag and flyash etc. These materials are posing serious problems of disposal and causing environmental pollution. Road Construction is one such sector where these materials can be utilised in bulk. CRRI started a few projects sponsored by Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), and all these materials were tested on a big scale in CRRI laboratory. Based on the success of laboratory results, various combinations were tried in the field and finally a road was constructed. This road has been monitored regularly for surface unevenness and pavement structural strength. This paper gives the results of extensive laboratory investigations and performance of the road.

Steel Industry-Wastes as New Materials for Road Construction

St. Louis, Missouri

A large number of steel plants have been set up in India and they are producing several million tonnes of iron and steel. However, the production of iron and steel is always associated with the generation of waste materials like air cooled slag, steel slag, granulated slag and flyash etc. These materials are posing serious problems of disposal and causing environmental pollution. Road Construction is one such sector where these materials can be utilised in bulk. CRRI started a few projects sponsored by Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), and all these materials were tested on a big scale in CRRI laboratory. Based on the success of laboratory results, various combinations were tried in the field and finally a road was constructed. This road has been monitored regularly for surface unevenness and pavement structural strength. This paper gives the results of extensive laboratory investigations and performance of the road.
