Developments in the use of slags from iron and steel plants in road pavements

The paper describes recent developments in iron and steel plant slag uses in road pavement base, subbase and surfacing in Australia. The self cementing properties of air cooled iron blast-furnace slag and the binding properties of granulated blast-furnace slag and fly-ash in "grave laitier" base and sub-base are described. BOS steel slag has recently been used in increasing quantities in base construction and a cooperative research project involving both road authority and materials suppliers, which is aimed at recommending quality control tests, is described.
