In bituminous road construction aggregate is the principal material. Aggregates constitute about 90% or even more of the total construction materials. While selecting aggregate for road construction, search has to be intensified for easily accessible, low-cost natural aggregates and investigate the suitability of indigenous aggregates. Every effort must be taken to select the most economical aggregate which should also perform satisfactorily the design criteria for the road construction conditions. A laboratory investigation was carried out to investigate the design performance of bituminous pavement using different fine aggregates. While constructing bituminous pavement a mix of coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, mineral filler, and bitumen are used. The demand for natural fine aggregate can be reduced by recycling waste tiles chips. Waste tiles, chips aggregate refer to aggregate that has been previously used in the concrete structure as a floor finish. This study easy carried out to investigate the possibility of using waste tiles, chips as a fine aggregate. Therefore, two types of fine aggregate were used to study and compare the behavior of bituminous mixes using waste tiles with that of coarse sand. The Marshall Mix design procedure specified by AASHTO standard was followed in the determination of stability, flow, density, voids in the mixes and the optimum bitumen content. The test specimens were compacted with 50 blows from the consideration of medium traffic. The test results indicated that dense graded bituminous mixes with two types of different fine aggregates satisfy the Marshall Design criteria. From the economic consideration, mixes with waste tiles, chips are comparatively more suitable when available at the construction site. Dense bituminous mix using waste tiles, chips as fine aggregate for medium traffic, is a feasible option from the standpoint of stability, stiffness, deformations and void characteristics.
