Abstract: Every year, there are more and more industrial wastes, and disposal has become a major issue. With advancements in technology in every industry, it is imperative to effectively utilize the steel slag waste. In our nation, murram dirt is frequently used for the construction of all types of roadways. Several types of murram soils are discovered to be unsuitable for road construction due to increased finer fraction and excessive plasticity qualities, despite murram being an excellent construction material. However, due to their rarity, they raise construction costs in some sections of the country. such as the steel slag that is a common industrial material that is used to pave roads. In India, the issue is how to dispose of it safely given that the road construction industry has serious health and environmental risks ,environmental issues, waste management, and the progressive loss of natural resources like soil and aggregates. Steel slag is a waste product created by the steel industry as a by-product of the production of steel. The amount of generation from the various steel industry in India (ref. report.crri-2010) is approximately 24 lac mt per year. It currently has no applications and is recklessly dumped on the expensive property next to the plants. The steel slag material was mechanically stabilized with locally available soil in the range of 5 to 15% in order to enhance its geotechnical engineering qualities. To determine whether these stabilized mixes geotechnical characteristics are suitable for use in building.

Keywords: Steel slag, Asphalt, ductility test.
