Das, Bibhuti Bhusan (2014) Characterization of ferrochrome slag as an embankment and pavement material. MTech by Research thesis.
Various efforts are being made to use the industrial wastes as an alternate construction material to conserve the natural resources and effective utilization of the industrial waste to sustain the industrialization. But limited attempts have been made to characterize Indian ferrochrome slag as a construction material. In the work an effort has been made to characterize the ferrochrome slag as an embankment and pavement material. Different laboratory tests pertaining to Geotechnical and highway material characterization has been made and the results have been compared with other industrial wastes like fly ash, red mud and natural soil. An effort also has been made
to use stabilize the low strength, residual soil in terms of increasing its strength and California bearing ratio values.
