oa Interim : Interdisciplinary Journal - Environmental effects of road pavements stabilized with Class F fly ash

 

Abstract

Fly Ash is a residue generated by coal combustion and abundantly available, but due to potentially toxic elements found in Fly Ash, is considered harmful to the environment. The objective of this study is to evaluate the environmental effects of fly ash used as a stabilization agent in road pavement construction. Using laboratory-testing specimens of fly ashes namely, Kendal Dump Ash, Durapozz and Pozzfill, stabilized with classified G5 material and 1% AFRISAM and LAFARGE cement respectively and leach testing done to evaluate chemical leach properties over time and the harmful effects it has on the environment. Laboratory leaching sample results have indicated that Fly Ash constituents exhibit limited mobility. The study revealed that Fly Ash is an environmental option and has engineering advantages when used properly for soil stabilization techniques.
