Industrial growth has increased the volume of wastes generated from energy production, mining, industrial processes and civil works. For economic and related reasons, the use of waste materials in construction as partial or full replacements for conventional geomaterials has increased. This proceeeings, Utilization of Waste Materials in Civil Engineering Construction, consists of papers that discuss policy issues, current practices, performance requirements, engineering characteristics and the potential uses of a wide variety of waste materials in geotechnical systems, highway pavements and construction products. Among the waste materials covered are: 1) Incinerator ash; 2) flue gas desulfurization sludge; 3) coal mine waste; 4) microsilica; 5) rubber tires; 6) phosphogypsum; 7) carbide lime waste; and 8) sewage sludge.
