Stabilized Fly Ash for Use as Low-Permeability Barriers
Two class F fly ashes from power stations located in West Virginia were stabilized by adding various percentages (by weight) of either lime or cement. Test specimens were subjected to...

Use of Geomembranes in Deep Valley Landfills
The installation of geomembranes (synthetic liners) under deep valley landfills of utility and mine waste presents unique problems. Limited data are available concerning geomembranes beneath...

Fly Ash as a Potential Waste Liner
Earthen liners have been widely used to contain toxic and hazardous materials in ponds and landfills. There is close scrutiny over the durability of liners in contact with various wastes...

Evaluation of Compacted Inert Paper Solids as a Cover Material
The following paper presents the results of a laboratory test program which focused on compacted sludges or inert paper solids (IPS) as recommended cover (cap) material over existing IPS...

The Typical Engineering Properties of Fly Ash
Knowledge of key physical and engineering properties of coal fly ash is needed in the planning, design, and construction of both disposal and utilization projects. While considerable data...

Embankment Over Fly Ash Pond at Portsmouth Power Station
The fly ash and bottom ash sediments from the Portsmouth Power Station in Portsmouth, Virginia were being sluiced into a 39 acre diked ash pond near the plant. The plant was about to convert...

Stabilization of FGC Wastes
Presently, flue gas cleaning (FGC) wastes (scrubber sludges and flyash) are produced in large quantities, with future production likely to increase as utilities install additional stack...

An Analysis of the Economic Post-Combustin Recovery Potential for Selected Metals at Municipal Incinerator Facilities

Dynamic Shear Modulus of Flyash

Tunnel Saved by Flyash
When inspection early in 1986 showed that Detroit's Northeast Raw Water Tunnel was near collapse at one location, quick action and a unique use of flyash-cement grout or fill...

Siltation of the Port of Astoria
Sedimentation rates suddenly increased in the Port of Astoria, Oregon, immediately following the May 18, 1980 ash eruption of Mt. St. Helens. This ash was transported down the Columbia...

New Runways Take Off
The two mile long runway 9-27, now being constructed at Houston Intercontinental Airport, was built for about 30% ($7 million) less than if designed conventionally. Rather than concrete...

Fixation of Chromium and Cadmium from Electroplating Waste Sludges
The authors compare the effectiveness of two fixation techniques, namely silicate-cement and lime-fly ash, for immobilizing chromium and cadmium in a waste sludge obtained from an electroplating...

Unique Ash Disposal Facility Protects Water Quality

Fly Ash Disposal and Groundwater Quality

Coal Ash Disposal and Water Quality: A Case Study

Type C Fly Ash and Clay Stabilization
Because the soils onsite have a high swell potential, a 37 foot high retaining wall was designed with counterforts and was supported by pier foundations to limestone. In order to reduce...

Need a Dependable Backfill—Try a Flowable Fly Ash
Flowable fly ash is a relatively new cementitious structural backfill material. It can be used in water or in the dry and will flow into place without the usual labor-intensive activities...

Low Cement Content High Strength Concrete
The fundamental objective of this research project was to develop mix design information for structural grade concrete using high fly ash content. The fly ash used in this project was...
