Abstract:
After stating the characteristics of pozzolanic materials, the effects of replacing with pozzolans part of the portland cement in concrete are considered briefly. Results of tests with fly ash and superfine diatomite are cited to show the possible use of those materials in the East and Midwest where natural pozzolans of the West are not economically available.
