MINI SESSION: New Approaches to Measuring Pozzolanic Activity

Mon, October 21, 2019 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM, C-232

New tests are being proposed to measure the pozzolanic activity of fly ash and other pozzolans. The objective of this session is to introduce the methods and provide an opportunity for stake holders to learn more about these tests’ methods, which may ultimately be used to help characterize or specify these materials for use in concrete.
Learning Objectives:
(1) Recognize various new tests for measuring pozzolanic activity;
(2) Identify the benefits of these new tests relative to existing test methods;
(3) Describe approaches to using these new tests for characterizing pozzolanic materials;
(4) Discuss approaches to incorporating these new tests into material specifications.
