The Design and Application of Controlled Low-Strength Materials (Flowable Fill)

Editor(s): Amster K. Howard, Jennifer L. Hitch

Features the most current research on design procedures and flowable fill applications, as well as five ASTM standards on CLSM. 26 peer-reviewed papers cover a wide range of new developments in the field, including:

Ingredients -- Fly ash and aggregates including recycled glass are explored in four papers.

Properties of CLSM -- Five papers examine a wide range of properties, including bearing strength, diggability, compressibility and long term strength gain.

Test Methods, Standards, and Specifications -- Innovative testing techniques as well as a history of CLSM testing and new industry standards are featured in four papers.

Case Histories -- Numerous new uses for flowable fill, such as use in substandard bridge replacement, tilt-up construction, and use as backfill in sequential excavations are some of the applications presented in eight papers.

Pipeline Applications -- Five papers deal with specific uses for CLSM on varying types of pipeline construction and installations.
