Abstract

In the current scenario, reducing and reusing of wastes has become more cardinal. Reuse of waste generated is as essential as reduction in generation of new wastes. Industrial waste accounts to about 60 % of the total waste generated. Steel slag is one of the major industrial waste being dumped without being processed. There comes the need to effectively process and reuse this major Industrial waste to use it as an alternative in the fast growing construction field. This steel slag, a hard and porous material can be broken to the size of aggregates and can be used as a replacement for conventional aggregates in different layers of bituminous road construction. The steel slag aggregate tends/ to be an effective alternative for natural aggregates. In this study the steel slag aggregates are collected and preliminary tests were performed to evaluate their properties. The percentage of replacement of natural aggregate with steel slag aggregate is optimized for durable and cost effective construction.
