Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This provisional guide covers the design and construction of engineered structural fills using coal combustion fly ash, This provisional guide suggests procedures for consideration of engineering, economic, and environmental factors in the development of fly ash structural fills.

1.2 The utilization of coal combustion fly ash under this provisional guide is a component of a pollution prevention program; Guide E 1609 describes pollution prevention activities in more detail. Utilization of coal combustion fly ash in this manner conserves land, natural resources, and energy.

1.3 This provisional guide applies only to fly ash produced solely by the combustion of coal. It does not apply to bottom ash, boiler slag or mixtures of fly ash, bottom ash or boiler slag.

1.4 The testing, engineering, and construction practices for fly ash structural fills are similar to generally accepted practices for engineered soil fills. Fly ash structural fills should be designed by a qualified professional engineer.

1.5 Regulations governing the use of fly ash vary by state. The user of this provisional standard has the responsibility to determine and comply with applicable regulations.

1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

1.7 Provisional standards achieve limited consensus through approval of the sponsoring subcommittee.

1.8 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
