Thermal power plants using coal generate huge quantities of ash, about 700 million tons, out of which India contributes about 110 million tons. It poses a serious problem in bulk storage and handling. Giving emphasis on the bulk utilization of coal ash such as embankments, pavements, backfilling etc, the book enumerates in detail the characterization of coal ashes for geotechnical applications and deals with the chemical, physical and engineering properties of coal ash. The potential of coal ash that favours its use in stabilising soils has been discussed. This book will assist graduate, postgraduate, and research students as also practicing civil engineers.
