Ladle Furnace Slag (LFS) may be used in substitution of fine aggregate (2–0.063 mm), and filler (<0.063 mm) in bituminous mixtures, considering its suitable particle size and hydraulic properties. From among the range of bituminous mixtures, this research is conducted on Porous Asphalt mixes (PA). Their high void ratio means they can absorb any eventual expansion of the LFS.
Mechanical behavior, moisture susceptibility and durability are all tested. The results report the performance of the LFS mixtures, which showed compliance with the specifications of the relevant standards and no significant differences from those made of natural aggregates and cement.
