Description
Proceedings of sessions at the ASCE Civil Engineering Conference and Exposition, held in Baltimore, Maryland, October 19-21, 2004. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE.

This Geotechnical Special Publication presents 15 papers highlighting the latest developments in the rapidly evolving field of recycled materials in geotechnics. A number of recent federal and state initiatives have promoted use of these materials, which are seeing increasingly common use in engineering practice. The use of recycled materials is now required for some federally funded projects, and many states and municipalities offer economic incentives encouraging the use these materials in new transportation projects. Recent improvements in material processing and field construction techniques have made the use of these materials cost competitive for general civil engineering construction. The papers in this comprehensive volume report on a range of recycled materials including tire-derived aggregate, soil-tire shred blends, tire bales, fly ash, paper sludge, dredged materials, asphalt shingles, and foundry sands, among others.

This useful, up-to-date reference for both practitioners and researchers includes contributions from renowned authorities in North America, Europe, and Asia.
