UTILIZING COPPER SLAG AND CONSTRUCTION WASTE IN PROBLEMATIC SOIL IMPROVEMENTBHARATH M.
Copper slag a byproduct from copper extraction and construction demolition wastes should be reused because these waste materials occupy larger area and reusing these materials leads to sustainable development. In this study, compressive test on column were conducted to ensure the suitability of waste as column materials for reducing settlement and void ratio (to achieve increased density). Waste material encased with geo composites is also analyzed. Hence it is concluded that even some slippage happens due to the texture of copper slag it may be used as better replacement material for conventional stones.
