This manual provides the information needed to use coarse anthracite and bituminous wastes in highway embankment construction. It has 2 parts. Part 1 contains wide ranging data needed for an understanding of coal-mine refuse (CMR) properties, its origins, and regulations governing its disposal. Case histories of highway embankments with CMR are included. Part 2--the user's portion of the manual--sets forth the procedures to follow from planning through construction of highway embankments with CMR. The manual will benefit highway and environmental planners, and those engaged in highway design, materials testing, and construction. While geotechnical engineers should be consulted in the design of all highway embankments, the manual contains some elementary geotechnical data for the benefit of those organizations with limited geotechnical skills.
