Fly ash is being used in combination with portland cement in the concrete mix at Hungry Horse Dam because of the benefits derived from its use, including lower cost. The effects of the fly ash being used at Hungry Horse Dam as a constituent in concrete on the workablity, compressive strength, durablity, permeablity, heat of hydration, volume change, and counteraction of expansive reaction between aggregates and alkalis in cement are discussed briefly.
