Generally the products produced from this type of slag are known as Steel Furnace Slag and their ASMS product codes commence with 'SFS'. Steel slag is a byproduct obtained from steel industry. All slag is crushed, screened and graded to specific sizes. pavements. Utilization of steel slag aggregate for road bases Aiban S.A. Journal of Testing and Evaluation Vol. Because of its hydraulic property and the large bearing capacity it can provide, steel making slag is used as a road base course material. Alternatively, some of these materials 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. Standard: BS EN 13242. 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. Test results indicate that steel slag and CRT glass can be used as substitutes for natural aggregates due to their satisfactory physical and mechanical properties. 34, Issue.1, 2006 Abstract: Industrial wastes and byproducts have to be disposed off properly so that their environmental impacts are minimized. 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. Volume 71, Issue 11. ASMS processes the steel furnace slag into asphalt aggregates, road bases, fill materials and filter materials. embankment, sub-grade, sub-base, upper layers of road pavement. 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. 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. 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. With high particle density and hardness, this slag has superior wear resistance, which makes it an excellent aggregate for asphalt concrete. Steel slag mixture has sound economic benefit and potential great environmental benefit compared to limestone mixture. Application specification: Highway Works series 800 and BS EN 13285. Steel Research. A comprehensive study was conducted to characterize SSA and determine the potential for its use in road bases. Product end use: unbound steel slag aggregate - sub base. Other particle size materials should be used for other applications (eg, road base, etc.). treat contaminated groundwater. This paper is introduction steel slag and fly ash to do road base-course material, such can make good use of industry residue waste in large amount to reduce exploitation and cut down natural building stones, it is an application for ecological building materials again. steel furnaces, is road base. 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. 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. 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. 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 The evaluated strength of subgrade filling give the indices of different highway grade and different road base … This is important to farmers who are under extreme pressure to limit the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous from non point source areas. *2 Index used to evaluate expansion of iron and steel slag for road construction containing steelmaking slag. *3 Standard value per iron and steel slag … 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. This paper reviews the production, processing, and characteristics of steel slag, and its use as a cementing component in different cementing systems. Slag - Usage • Slag aggregates are approved for a number of uses although there are restrictions. The research focused on the use of different types of slag in road … steelmaking slag for road base course use. 2. 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. The addition of steel slag, at content levels of up to 20% of total solid material, is suggested as optimum with regard to stability, economy, and strength of the blended cement. *1 Detection of yellow turbid water from iron and steel slag for road construction containing air-cooled blast furnace slag. Leaching behaviour of rock material and slag used in road construction ‐ amineralogical interpretation. 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). 13.4.3 Quantification criterion for steel slag use in blended cement manufacture Slag road construction trials were conducted at a Qatar Steel site in 2016. Re-circulating water through With safety in mind, many road agencies require the use of steel slag when skid resistance is of prime concern. Mechanical characterization of materials such as steel slag are indicated in road engineering by performing the CBR test. • Blast furnace slag may be used in concrete. 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. ce- ment raw material, road base course material and civil engineering material, by effectively 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. Roads built with porous asphalt using steel slag are quiet, safe and long-lasting. • Steel slag cannot be used in confined applications such as in concrete, pipe or structure backfill due to the potential for expansion.
