Road Construction using Recycled Aggregates

PI: Prof. Animesh Das
Co-PI: Prof. Partha Chakrabarty


The Project Site

Natural resources used for road construction are depleting. Consequently, the haulage cost for acquiring good quality stone aggregates is increasing. The environmental costs of quarrying are also substantial. The project involves design of a road structure using the aggregates of the existing road as recycled material. Recycled materials will be used either in unbound form or in lightly cemented form. Suggestions will be made on the suitable proportion of recycled material (and other ingredients) for the individual layers of the road structure. Finally, few design solutions (out of numerous possible alternative designs) will be recommended.
