Abstract: Epdm Rubber is produced excessively worldwide in every year. It cannot be degraded easily as its decomposition takes much time and also causes environmental pollution. One of the mostly used synthetic rubbers is Ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM), it is used in cold-room doors seals, electrical insulation etc. This Research shows that Epdm rubber and stone dust are added to base course, after mixing in base course CBR, Plate load and cyclic load test of pavement are investigated and acquired results are compared with regular base course. This paper reviews the use of Epdm and stone dust as supplementary material in base course of a flexible pavement. A detailed literature survey is carried out and presented here.
