Strengthen the Bituminous Road by Using Dimensioned Stone Waste
Publication Date : 04/04/2019
Abstract— Humankind has always exploited the natural resources to fulfill its basic needs. The development of country is directly related to the road network of the country as we know India is in its developing stage. Road construction required raw material i.e. Bitumen, Aggregate, Earth etc. These materials are natural resources which increase the consumption which makes the depletion of natural resources. Due to depletion of natural resources make human switch to alternative material available for construction construction. Kota Stone and Marble are fine grained variety of dimension stone mined in and around Kota and Kishangarh. In recent years, studies have claimed the waste material from dimension stone can be used into pavement district respectively. After mining, stone under goes finishing operation such as cutting, sawing and polishing. Each operation is accomplished with generation of non-biodegradable material stone waste. This study mainly focus on using Kota stone, Marble stone waste as a form of aggregate and Marble dust as a filler material at 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100 % of replacement to natural material in various layer of Flexible Pavement. Flexible pavement layer consider for this study are Granular Sub-Base (GSB) grade I & II having coarse and fine aggregate in different proposition. Replacements of natural aggregate with Dimensioned stone waste in these layers are examined on parameter like Proctor test, CBR test. Engineering properties of Kota stone and marble stone waste are compared to natural material as per MoR&TH recommended test procedure. Index Terms—CBR Test, Proctor Test, GSB, Kota stone, marble pavement etc.
