Flowable fill can be used in place of compacted borrowed fill for applications including bedding and backfill for utility trenches or retaining walls, paving subbase, and bridge abutments. It can also be applied to underground structures, including abandoned tanks, basements, tunnels, mines and sewers.
In terms of cost, flowable fill is a good alternative to other kinds of backfill. It reduces in-place costs because it is:
- Quick drying
- Easy to excavate
- Requiring less personnel to handle it
Flowable fill also offers safety benefits – it can be applied without workers having to enter the trench, thus avoiding the danger of possible cave-ins. Its performance is best evaluated by its easy placement, along with its relative strength compared to standard backfill materials.
