This invention is related to the geotechnical/structural filling material, embankment, slopes, dam’s railway base course, road base course, bridge abutments and numbers of units have been proposed to utilize waste tyre grids as the reinforcement in conjunction with large volume of industrial waste. The invention provides a reinforced embankment comprising well compacted industrial waste materials and reinforcement within it to strengthen the embankment and slope, it being provided in conjunction with the filling material and cohesive to the grid thereof. The invention aims at strengthening the embankment to resist the load likely to come on it wherein all the horizontal forces are absorbed by the reinforced industrial waste slopes. The tyre grid reinforcement is included at suitable depths within the slopes of the embankments made up from Pozzolonic industrial waste materials. The Pozzolonic waste material is mixed with water and compacted in successive layers with inclusion of tyre grid. This reduces waste landfill size and work as novel geotechnical filling material for construction of embankments, bridges, abutments, road sub base, etc.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
