In the present study, an attempt is made to find the usage and utilization of by-products or recycledmaterials in bituminous paving mixes. The experiment started with the conduction of basic tests for various materials like Coarse aggregate, Fine aggregate, Bitumen, and by-product or recycled materials like copper slag, foundry sand, and brickbats. These materials were tested for their suitability in carrying out the work or as a prediction to know an alternative to these materials. The basic tests are also carried out for Bitumen like ductility, softening point, penetration, flash and fire, specific gravity & viscosity. Marshall stability test is done for both conventional mix and alternativemixes.


Bitumen, Brickbats, By-product materials, Copper slag, Foundry sand, Marshall stability test.
