The paper describes commercial use of concretes containing fly ash in Australia. comparison is made between fly ash and other concrete types, mainly on the basis of equal 28 day strength. Setting times, Bleeding, Workability, Air Entrainment, Rate of Strength Gain, Elastic Properties, Flexural and Indirect Tensile Strength, Heat of Hydration, Shrinkage Creep, Sulphate Resistance, Carbonation, Abrasion Resistance, Alkali Aggregate Reactivity are discussed. Field observations of concrete structures containing fly ash after prolonged environmental exposure are also included.
