The United States is a major producer of agricultural, industrial, mining, and municipal waste materials in the world. Traditional methods of waste disposal most often have resorted to landfill and stockpiling on land. The accumulation of these massive by-products residues present considerable environmental, aesthetic, economical and social problems. The papers presented in this proceedings, ""Utilization of Industrial By-Products for Construction Materials"", deal with the recent research investigations associated with the utilization of by-product residues for the construction industry. They include: silica fume, a by-product of the manufacture of silicon or ferro silicon alloy in an electric arc coal combustion furnace; phosphogypsum, a by-product of the phosphoric acid industry; and fly ash and bottom ash, by-products of the electric power industry resulting from burning coal. This book discusses the use of these by-products in masonry construction, corrosion control in reinforced concrete, and underground facilities construction. With various public and private agencies actively promoting alternative methods of solid waste disposal, recycling or conversion into viable construction materials seems to be the logical solution that allows the conservation of natural resources, abates further pollution, and preserves the environment.
