Abstract: The major factor affecting cost of road construction is cost of aggregates and binder materials. The study determines the suitability of recycled material in road construction. This will help in achieving economy in road construction as well as saving on environment degradation in term of reduced mining and less pollution. Construction and maintenance of roads and highways involve use of specified gradation of aggregates and properties of the binder. Replacing a part of the virgin mix with recycled aggregate is an optimal solution provided the recycled mix retains desirable strength and durable functions of the mix. This paper deals with use of recycled premix chipping carpet for rural road construction.
Keywords: Premix Chipping Carpet, Recycled Mix.
