Bituminous mixes for flexible pavement construction are most commonly used all over the world. Mainly aggregate, sand, bitumen etc. are used for pavement construction. In this investigation an attempt is made to study the properties of bituminous pavement materials by the partial replacement of spent foundry sand as fine aggregate with an increment of 10%. Foundry sand is a high quality silica sand that is used to form molds for ferrous (iron and steel) and non-ferrous (copper, aluminum, brass etc.) metal castings. Metal casting industries use huge quantity of foundry sand every year and disposed them after being used. This industrial waste occupies large amount of space of the land. If this sand can be utilized in pavement construction, the disposal and pollution problem can be minimized. The main objective of this study is to determine sufficient bitumen content and mix stability to ensure a durable and cost effective pavement after being partial replacement of foundry sand. The proposed mix design will be conducted in accordance with Marshall Mix design. After performing the experimental investigation it is found that for 30% replacement of waste foundry sand provide superior field performance and better stability than the conventional mixes.
