Abstract

To meet the global demand of concrete in the future, it is becoming a more challenging task to find suitable alternatives to natural aggregates for preparing concrete, hence the use of alternative sources for natural aggregates is becoming increasingly important. Slag is a co-product of the iron and steel making process. Iron cannot be prepared in the blast furnace without the production of its co-product i.e. induction furnace slag. The use of induction furnace slag aggregates in concrete by replacing natural aggregates is a most promising concept because its impact strength is more than the natural aggregate. Steel slag aggregates are already being used as aggregates in asphalt paving road mixes due to their mechanical strength, stiffness, porosity, wear resistance and water absorption capacity.
