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. This is important to farmers who are under extreme pressure to limit the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous from non point source areas. The CBR values are key factors of estimating the roadbed thickness. Road Shoulders; Unconfined Road Base; Soil Remediation; Skid resistance has proven to be one of the greatest benefits of steel slag over other natural aggregates for roadway paving. Steel slag is produced during the separation of the molten steel from impurities in steel-making furnaces. • Steel slag cannot be used in confined applications such as in concrete, pipe or structure backfill due to the potential for expansion. Steel slag is a byproduct from either the conversion of iron to steel in a basic oxygen furnace, or the melting of scrap to make steel in an electric arc furnace. Application specification: Highway Works series 800 and BS EN 13285. Volume 71, Issue 11. Mechanical characterization of materials such as steel slag are indicated in road engineering by performing the CBR test. *1 Detection of yellow turbid water from iron and steel slag for road construction containing air-cooled blast furnace slag.

LITERATURE REVIEW The ductility of bitumen containing steel slag aggregates firstly increases and then decreases with increase in percentage of steel slag aggregates in the mix. Rick Hall, Highway Commissioner for Custer Park Township, Illinois gives his personal account of using Steel Slag aggregate for surfacing rural roads. *3 Standard value per iron and steel slag … This Standard specifies requirements for the iron and steel slag intended for use in a base course mixture or hot laid asphalt mix for road construction (hereafter referred to as iron and steel slag). With high particle density and hardness, this slag has superior wear resistance and for this reason is used as an aggregate for asphalt concrete. *2 Index used to evaluate expansion of iron and steel slag for road construction containing steelmaking slag. In recent years, steam aging treatment or high pressure aging treatment is often applied to steelmaking slag to ensure moderate, uniform expansion of the slag, especially when the slag is to be used, for example, for road base course material, where expansion can become a major problem. Re-circulating water through The aim of the present work is to prepare a new type of steel slag–fly ash–phosphogypsum solidified material totally composed with solid wastes to be utilized as road base material. 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. A comprehensive study was conducted to characterize SSA and determine the potential for its use in road bases. Steel slag is a byproduct obtained from steel industry. Because of the high disposal cost as a waste material and the overall positive features of steel slag, it has been declared a useful construction material, not an industrial waste by most of the developed countries. Steel slag also has numerous applications, such as an efficient non-slip choice for asphalt pavement where friction is desirable. treat contaminated groundwater. Generally the products produced from this type of slag are known as Steel Furnace Slag and their ASMS product codes commence with 'SFS'. The main function of these production lines is to recover maximum metal content from slag and crush the slag in five different sizes 0 to 4 mm, 4 to 6 mm, 6 to 14 mm, 14 to 23 mm and 23 to 40 mm that can be reused in other industries like cement, road base layer and concrete. With high particle density and hardness, this slag has superior wear resistance, which makes it an excellent aggregate for asphalt concrete. Slag road construction trials were conducted at a Qatar Steel site in 2016. About 40 million tons of steel slag a year, which is the by-product of iron and steel manu- facture, is generated in Japan and the almost all the slag is reused for the materials, e.g. The addition of steel slag into the road base is feasible, with the best overall performance obtained at the content of 50%. Because of its hydraulic property and the large bearing capacity it can provide, steel slag is often used as a road base course material. Steelmaking slag Because of its hydraulic property and the large bearing capacity it can provide, steelmaking slag is used as a road base course material. However, steel slag aggregate was reported to exhibit higher porosity, superior adhesion with binder due to its surface structure and chemical content, and favourable shapes. The slag occurs as a molten liquid melt and is a complex solution of silicates and oxides ... 4.2 Road base course use BF slag and steelmaking slag can be used to make roads that last long under traffic loads. Because of the high disposal cost as a waste material and the overall positive features of steel slag, it has been declared a useful construction material, not an industrial waste by most of the developed countries. The steel furnace slag is then removed from the pits. NLMK Lipetsk has supplied 2 million tonnes of slag crushed stones to DSK Avtoban for building the fourth section of Moscow’s Central Ring Road that opened on 28 December 2020. Steel Research. Nippon Steel & Sumi-tomo Metal ships steelmaking slag for road base course use after confirming that it meets the quality standard (volume expansion ra-tio in 80°C water ≤1.5%) by the test method according to JIS A 5015.4) 3.3 Alkalinity Because of the CaO content, water leaching from steelmaking All slag is crushed, screened and graded to specific sizes. Due to the difference of cooling and treatment processes (rolling method, hot braised method, layer pouring method), basic oxygen furnace (BOF) steel slag can be mainly classified as roller steel slag (RSS), hot braised steel slag (HBSS) and layer pouring steel slag (LPSS). steel furnaces, is road base. Slag - Usage • Slag aggregates are approved for a number of uses although there are restrictions. This paper reviews the production, processing, and characteristics of steel slag, and its use as a cementing component in different cementing systems. Leaching behaviour of rock material and slag used in road construction ‐ amineralogical interpretation. Mainly as a granular road base or as an aggregate in construction applications, steel slag aggregate (SSA) has been successfully used in the Middle East under hot weather conditions . The slag is The evaluated strength of subgrade filling give the indices of different highway grade and different road base … 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. Approximately 15 to 40% of the 10–15 million metric tons of steel slag generated in the United States in 2006 was not utilized . Slag in Base Roads. Steel slag mixture has sound economic benefit and potential great environmental benefit compared to limestone mixture. Roads built with porous asphalt using steel slag are quiet, safe and long-lasting. It can be concluded that the use of steel slag and CRT glass as a replacement for natural aggregate resulted in the sustainable management of road base paving application. Standard: BS EN 13242.
