Abstract: Permeable asphalt also called as porous asphaltpervious asphalt is defined as a mixture which is designed to allow the water (storm water, runoff water) to percolate through the pores into the beneath layer .The permeable asphalt mixture contains more number of air voids as compare to the conventional bituminous mix, thus resulting in greatest stability and flow values as compared to the conventional bituminous mix. The main purpose of the study is to scrutinise the mechanical properties of porous asphalt mixtures with replacement of asphalt with polypropylene granulated plastic waste. The polypropylene waste plastic used in the study have size ranging from 2mm to 2.36mm and then it was melted at 240℃and mixed with asphalt .The asphalt was replaced with different percentage of polypropylene at 3%,4%,5%,6%,7%,8%,9%,10%.Different tests were conducted on bitumen such as softening point test, penetration test ,ductility test ,specific gravity test .The analysis of pervious asphalt mixture was carried out with different tests such as Marshall method (stability value and flow value), cantabro loss test ,binder drain down test, permeability test. This study shows that the value of stability and cantabro loss of modified permeable asphalt mixture with 9% partial replacement of bitumen is 2508.4 kg and 13.25% , higher than that of nominal permeable asphalt mixture which is 13.22%.
