Abstract
Inadequate engineering design criteria for coal refuse embankments has allowed hazardous impoundment structures in coal mining areas to be created. A necessary first step to develop adequate design criteria is the determination of basic, representative physical property data on the materials that constitute typical refuse embankments. An extensive field and laboratory program was undertaken by the federal Bureau of Mines. Much physical property data was generated. Additional petrographic analysis and large- scale triaxial compression testing was performed by others. The data presented here should aid in establishing design parameters for coal refuse embankments.
