Abstract:- A combination of coarse add-on, fine aggregate, filler and binder is typically a bituminous mixture. Hot Asphalt Mix is a bituminous compound with all elements at high temperature, blended and compacted. HMA is known as Bituminous Concrete (BC) or Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA), which can be Dense Graded mixes (DGM) mixtures or graded holes. To avoid the drain from combining, SMA requires stabilising additives consisting of fibres of cellulose, mineral fibres and polymers. In this research, an attempt was made to examine results of the use in SMA, as stabilising agent and as a BC additive, of the natural and locally accessible Fiber called SISAL fibre. The overall gradation of the mixes according to the MORTH standard was routinely varied from 4 to 7 percent and fibre quality from 0 to 0.5% to maximum from 0.0%. Fly ash was shown to have satisfactory Marshall effects as part of the preliminary analysis and was thus used for subsequent works in mixtures. The optimum fibre content (OFC) of both BC and SMA mixes using the Marshall Method was found to be 0.3%. Similarly, BC and SMA's Optimum Binder Content (OBC) is defined as 5% and 5.2%. Then various performance tests such as drain down tests, static indirect tensile strength tests and Static Creep testing are performed in OBC and OFC, to measure the impact of Fibre applied on mixed performance. The conclusion is that adding sisal fibres, in both BC and SMA combinations, enhance the mixing properties such as Marshall Resilience, Drain Characters and Indirect Tensile power. Ii it is found that, with regard to indirect tensile strength and creep properties, SMA is greater than BC.

Highway building requires immense infrastructure spending. A detailed design will save substantial investment and ensure consistent efficiency on the in-service route. In flexible paving engineering and mix design two things are of major importance. This research is connected to the nature of the blend. A successful configuration of the bituminous mix can lead to a suitable mix of following

(i) solid

(ii) robust

(iii) environmentally safe

(iv) economically resistant to fatigue

(v) permanent deformation

A mix designer seeks to do this by evaluating a mix of various proportions and finalises with the best. In the present work, some of the problems involved in this art of bituminous mixing and in the direction of current research are listed.
