DEVELOPING SPECIFICATIONS FOR WASTE GLASS AND WASTE-TO-ENERGY BOTTOM ASH AS HIGHWAY FILL MATERIALS. VOLUME 2 OF 2 (WASTE GLASS)
Waste glass (WG), consisting of the non-recyclable portion of disposed glass, from typical sources in Florida was evaluated to determine potential applications for highway fill material. WG has the physical and engineering properties necessary for use in many highway applications. It can be safely handled when sized to meet ASTM D 448 number 8 or finer material, it is suitable for use as a drainage material, it has excellent frictional characteristics and its grains do not break down when subjected to high confined compression. WG has relatively low bearing ratios (i.e., CBR and LBR) and is therefore, not currently recommended for use in base/subbase applications. The geotechnical engineering properties of WG have been evaluated and are summarized.
