ICS Code (Equipment for the metallurgical industry): 77.180
scope:

This practice covers methods to use foundry sand as embankment and structural fill.

It includes recommended construction (Section 5), compaction control (Section 6), and freeze-thaw durability (Section 7) practices.

The engineer should be aware that foundry sand is a by-product of metal casting industries. Various state, county, and local environmental laws and regulations may apply if foundry sand is used as an alternative embankment or fill material. It is advised that foundry sand users contact state, county, and local environmental regulators to determine what requirements or limitations may exist.

This standard applies to both green foundry sand and chemically bonded foundry sand.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
