Workshop on Utilization of Fly Ash and other Coal Combustion By-Products in Concrete and Other Construction Materials

Day 1

December 9, 1997, Milwaukee, WI

Workshop Description

A workshop on coal ash reuse/recycling is planned at the Milwaukee River Hilton Inn, Milwaukee, WI, on December 9, 1997. The purpose of the workshop is to bring attendees up-to-date with the latest information on utilization of fly ash and other coal combustion by-products in concrete and other civil engineering applications. The program will include presentations showing important technical and economic advantages of using these abundantly available materials in ordinary, everyday construction applications including ready mixed concrete, precast concrete, flowable slurry for backfilling excavations, highway construction, etc. The workshop should be of interest to those associated with the construction industry, including design and materials engineers, architects, engineering technicians, engineers working in governmental agencies, industry and private practice, engineering faculty and students, as well as ready mixed concrete producers, concrete products manufacturers, and concrete contractors. The workshop will also provide significant help to people from utilities and other industries producing coal ash.

The program will cover basic information, application case histories, as well as the latest developments in the utilization of coal ash from power plants in concrete and other construction materials. State of the art information will be presented by knowledgeable professionals engaged in specifying, approving, marketing, and using these materials. Handout materials will be provided.
