Abstract

Geotextiles have witnessed unparalleled growth worldwide in recent years in the field of different civil engineering constructions. With the growing environmental concern the global emphasis is towards the application of eco-concordant, bio-degradable, renewable green products and this has inclined towards the natural fibre-made fabrics and making them a natural choice for the mankind. Jute Geotextile (JGT) is increasingly gaining ground over its synthetic non-biodegradable and toxic counterpart leading significant innovation in the design of geotechnical and geoenvironmental systems. One of the prime applications of JGT in civil engineering gamut is in road construction where JGT has been restricted so far as underlay. Hence, there is an urgent need to design and develop an innovative fabric as overlay on existing pavements to stay technically and economically competitive in the global market. Such a fabric will not only prove techno-economically viable but will also reduce the carbon foot-print generation to a large extent. This paper focusses on the laboratory simulation study of Bituminized Jute Paving Fabric (BJPF) carried out by the Department of Jute and Fibre Technology, University of Calcutta in collaboration with Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), New Delhi to establish its efficacy in reducing the cost of maintenance of the road and serving as a partial substitute of bitumen mastic enhancing thereby the life expectancy of the road.
