Abstract

Construction of pavement involves huge outlay of investment. Addition of certain materials like limestone, coconut shell, egg shell, saw dust etc. It may save considerable investment as well as gives reliable performance. This project describes the use egg shell as filler in bituminous pavements in order to fill the air voids. It involves identification of proper mix by obtaining optimum bitumen content (OBC) and optimum egg shell content by determining the Marshall Stability and flow values.
