Abstract:The Japan Industrial Standard (JIS) of “Fly Ash for Use in Concrete, JIS A 620 1 ” was revised in 1999 in order to widen the utilizable amount of fly ash as a mineral admixture. The featured points in this revision were that; [l] fly ash with high loss on ignition (LOI) ranging from 5.0% to 8.0% is specified as Class-III,  fly ash with low Blaine fineness ranging from 15OOcm’/g to 2500cm’ig is specified as Class-IV,  high quality fly ash with LO1 less than 3.0% and Blaine fineness more than 5000cm2/g was specified as Class-I. Most of the fly ash qualified in JIS A 6201-1996 would be specified as Class-II. Class-III and Class-IV fly ash wouldn’t meet the requirement of JIS A 6201-1996. This paper describes the background and the contents of the revision of JIS A 6201.
