Abstract This document provides information for users on the 'Engineering Properties: Use as engineering Fill' dataset. The 'use as engineering fill' of rocks and soils is an important consideration in civil engineering and extractive industry. The rapidly increasing cost of removal of material offsite, and especially disposal of unused material, means that a great deal of effort is now taken to identify how extracted materials are to be used on site. Engineered fill is used in earthworks, which includes infill, raising or levelling ground, embankments, foundation pads, road bases and landscaping. The earlier in the process this can be done then the greater the likelihood that it can be done efficiently.
