Abstract

Sand is used for filling mine voids in India. Due to high demand of sand for construction and infrastructure grown there will be a shortfall of sand in coming decade and fly ash can be one of the alternatives. Thermal power plant produces ash in large quantity and disposal of the same is a tedious job. Fly ash can be used as a viable option to use a filling material. In turn it will solve the problem of the disposal of ash economically and save sand and dewatering.
