  • Sustainability of RCC using Basalt Composite Rebars

    Crushed basalt is also used for road base, concrete aggregate, asphalt pavement aggregate, railroad ballast, filter stone in drain fields and may other purposes. Due to its superior abrasion resistance, thin slabs of basalt are cut and sometimes polished for use as floor tiles, building veneer, monuments and other stone objects (see Fig.3).

  • Railroad Ballast (Rock): Specifications, Sizes, Background

    Track ballast (usually crushed stone), as it is known, is another important part of railroad infrastructure. Although it may just look like plain ole gravel this stone plays a vital role in acting as a support base for the railroad ties and rails as well as allowing for proper drainage of water away from the rails (which is why the stone is always sloped downward and away from track).
