Sustainable use of mine waste and iron ore tailing in flexible pavement
Mine waste; iron ore tailings; fine aggregates; coarse aggregates; marshal stability.
Rapid growth of infrastructure in road construction need natural resources. There is a need to explore the feasibility of use of iron ore tailings and mine waste in road construction. Utilization of mine waste rocks and iron ore tailings in bitumen as aggregates will help in sustainable & greener development. This literature shows the potential use of iron ore tailings as a replacement of natural fine aggregates &mine waste as a replacement of coarse aggregates. As natural resources are depleting day by day, there is a need for substitution for aggregates in bitumen. A comprehensive overview of the published literature on the use of iron ore tailings & mine waste in bitumen is being presented. The various effects of various properties such as penetration, softening point, ductility, specific gravity, flash &fire point of bitumen have been presented here. In this paper the properties of fine aggregates, properties of coarse aggregates, and marshal stability values are determined.
