Abstract:Sulfate damage in concrete is a result of the reaction between C 3A in portland cement, which produces the hydration of calcium silicates and water soluble sulfates. The damage is reduced or overcome by replacing some of the cement with low-lime fly ash. High-lime fly ashes usually contain some free lime, anhydrite, iron oxide, and C 3A contents of PC-fa mortars and their sulfate expansions determined according to ASTM C 452 showed that, beside the sulfate resistance factor R, free CaO/Fe 2O 3 and C 3A + free alumina/free CaO ratios of the PC-fa mixes containing high fly ashes can be used to determine their sulfate susceptibility.
