Abstract:
Different amounts of fly ash, silica fume, or ground granulated iron blast furnace slag have been used with portland cement in an effort to prevent excessive expansion due to alkali-silica reaction or sulfate attack or both. The test methods used to establish optimum proportions were ASTM C 441 and ASTM C 1012. Once the optimum proportions were known, concrete mixtures were made and tested.
