Usage of Steel Slag in Unpaved Roads & Embankments
Our aim is to use an industrial waste (Steel slag) to strengthen our highways and also to find an effective way of disposing these waste materials. It also covers the aspects such as method of construction, testing for its strength, durability and maintenance process of these roads. Steel slag is a waste material obtained during the process of purification of ores. This slag consists of oxides such as Sio2, Cao and Al2O3 which are also present in Portland cement. This Cao is responsible for the pozzolanic behavior. The slag of size about 5-6mm is mixed with lime stone powder to achieve homogeneity and water is added in this method of construction. We suggest an effective waste disposal process and a replacement for conventional materials.
