Abstract:The potential use of Malaysian fly ash cement in concrete has been studied in terms of its influence on elastic properties, volume stability and durability properties. In durability studies, the resistance to chloride ingress, sulfate attack, and suppression of alkali-aggregate reactivity were examined. The results are presented and discussed. The role of the fly ash on heat of hydration, production of roller-compacted concrete, and high-strength, high-performance concrete have been proven in practice. Understanding the influence of fly ash on both fresh and hardened properties of concrete has led to its appropriate use in many important structures in Malaysia. They include the Petronas Twin Towers, the second Malaysia Singapore Causeway, and more recently considered for the construction of a major RCC dam. Properties of fly ash concrete are discussed with examples of application.
