Abstract
In this study an attempt is made to investigate the properties and CBR characteristics of fine sand and waste dust from construction debris. Attempts are also made to study the effect of soaking period on CBR value of waste dust from construction debris. Waste dusts passing through 600 µm sieve from construction debris and river sand are selected for investigation. Standard Test procedures specified by AASHTO are followed in this investigation. The testing includes the determination of specific gravity, sieve analysis, optimum moisture content, dry density and CBR value. Dense unit weight, specific gravity and fineness modulus of construction debris is 1273.44 Kg/m3, 2.43 and 1.36 respectively and for fine sand 1132.25 Kg/m3, 2.62 and 1.64 respectively. Un-soaked CBR value of construction debris and fine sand are 10.36% and 12.5% respectively. Soaked CBR values of construction debris and fine sand are 5.36% and 6.07% respectively. The study reveals that waste dust from construction debris is as good as fine sand for construction of sub-grade from the stand point of properties and CBR characteristics.
