THE POTENTIAL USE OF SECONDARY AGGREGATES IN GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Lead Research Organisation: University of Birmingham
Department Name: Civil Engineering

Abstract

The proposed research focuses on the potential application of secondary aggregates (created via carbonation of industrial waste streams) in geotechnical engineering applications. The proposed study would initially comprise an experimental investigation to determine the geotechnical properties of secondary aggregates and then determination of the potential direct applications of the material within geotechnical engineering. The project would be undertaken in associated with the University of Greenwich and Carbon8.

Description My research comprises using waste materials within ground treatment which has not previously been trialled. I am still very much in the experimental stage and do not expect to draw any firm conclusions until that work is finished (in approximately 6 months)
Exploitation Route If successful it will hopefully prompt those within the construction industry to utilise waste materials within ground treatment.
