Abstract: The need to fulfill the demands of an increasing population has resulted in rapid industrialization. Subsequently the demand for iron and steel has risen ensuing in setting up of more such industries. The paucity of land has made the disposal of solid waste from these industries an issue of concern. The present work suggests a unique approach of recycling and utilizing the solid waste from the steel industries, called Steel Slag (or WRP) as a pavement sub-base and a highway embankment material. A new material comprising of a matrix of WRP and HDPE strips in which the latter has been used as reinforcement has been developed. The investigations have been carried out by mixing different percentages of HDPE strips cut in the aspect ratios of 2,3and 4 in the WRP.A comparative study of inclusions of such reinforcement has then been made experimentally through Direct Shear, Split Tensile ,Unconfined Compression Strength and CBR tests.
