Laboratory Investigation Of Use Of Geo-Synthetic Material in Marshall Mix Design
Keywords:Geo-synthetic material; Marshall Mix design; PMB-40 &70; Asphalt retention; Melting point.
In India there are limited manufacturing facilities for
geo-synthetics, which compel us to import a large quantity. The
main purpose of this study is to use any such locally available
material, which is naturally and abundantly available in our
country. Reliance Industry Ltd. has prepared geo-synthetic
material like needle punch, spun bond. A Geo-synthetic material
when used with asphalt concrete has shown a serviceable life
equivalent to that of an overlay. On the Marshall Mix design,
OBC was calculated and prepared a Marshall moulds using geosynthetic material as well as without geo-synthetic material. The
Geo-synthetic material was placed as a intra layer in Marshall
moulds and stability was found.
