Analysis of Compressive Strength Optimization for Thin White Topping Using Taguchi Method

Akshay Jayanna, Gopanna Mahesh Kumar and Punith Basavaraj Kotagi


The principle recognition of the present technology is to construct a protracted-lasting and better performing pavement. This paper presents the use of the Taguchi technique to optimize the compressive strength of thin white topping. Three stages of every aspect were selected to perform these observations. As a result, the orthogonal array L9 of the Taguchi approach turned into used to layout the experiments. The consequences of the experiments were analyzed by the signal to noise ratio (SNR) and the analysis of variance. This analysis has revealed that the least large factor in phrases of energy contribution is the dosage of Portland cement concrete (PCC) material, whereas the curing temperature is the most vital issue in terms of energy contribution. This research shows that the optimized value of 7-day compressive strength turned into obtained inside the aggregate containing 30% of PCC and cured at 100 °C. In addition, 45% of PCC cured at 100 °C, gained the maximum compressive strength at 28-day. After United States of America, India has a largest street community and still called as a developing country. The purpose is the terrible condition of roads. Mostly, our roads are bituminous type, that have short lifestyles due to disasters in the form of fatigue cracking, rutting and early signs and symptoms of distresses. Those distresses get more suggested in warm climatic regions like India as bitumen is surprisingly touchy to temperature. White topping is the answer to such trouble and for this we also used Taguchi technique for experimental analysis. Concrete is recognized to be an incredibly stiff material and much less sensitive to high temperatures which offers better performance in opposition to rutting and cracking and also in phrases of rehabilitation and restore. White topping over the bituminous pavement affords better durability, strength, and further life of 20 – 30 years. So, keeping the optimization at top and for long run enhancement.
