PROPERTIES OF SOLID WASTE INCINERATOR FLY ASH

Based on the similarity in physical properties of solid waste incinerator fly ash (SWIF) to coal fly ash, an experimental study was conducted to investigate the engineering propeties of SWIF and its usefulness as an embankment and road subbase material. The details of the study and the findings are reported. It was found that the density of compacted SWIF is lower than that of most conventional fill materials. The test results indicate that the stabilization of SWIF with lime is less effective than cement and may cause swelling problems. On the other hand, properly compacted cement-stabilized SWIF may be a desirable construction material. Other study findings are also discussed.
