New Guide for Characterization of Inorganic Residual Materials and Alternative Aggregates for Use as Structural Fill and Base Course

1. Scope

Guidance is provided for use of selected residual materials and alternative aggregates as structural fills and base course by listing representative test methods for predicting and evaluating the physical characteristics of these materials that are related to the integrity of fills/base course and to protection of ground and surface waters


construction, reuse, recycling, geotechnical, geoenvironmental


With increasing sustainability initiatives, guidance is needed for safe and effective use of a variety of residual materials and alternative aggregates in civil engineering applications. This guide provides such guidance for users that include state agencies, regulatory agencies, material recyclers, and practitioners.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
