This proceedings, Recycled Materials in Geotechnical Applications, contains papers presented at sessions sponsored by the Geo-Institute in conjunction with the ASCE Annual Convention held in Boston, Massachusetts, October 18-21, 1998. They discuss field applications and laboratory testing related to recycled materials. Application oriented papers were on geotechnics of industrial by-products; paper mill sludge for landfill cover; mitigation of void development under bridge approach slabs using rubber tire chips; tire shreds as lightweight fill for embankments and retaining walls; performance of a highway embankment and hydraulic barriers constructed using waste foundry sand; and recycled materials for embankment construction. Papers on laboratory testing of recycled materials included lagoon-stored lime for embankment; construction and demolition debris for base and subbase applications; fly ash for flowable fill, pavement, earth structures and aggregate; repeated loading of stabilized recycled aggregate base course; compaction of contaminated soils-reuse as a road base material; and database on beneficial reuse of foundry by-products.
