Abstract:This paper describes an experimental investigation into the behavior of fly-ash concrete with respect to strength, durability, shrinkage and creep deformations. A subbituminous coal ash conforming to Class C requirements of ASTM C-618 was used. The use of fly ash as a partial replacement for cement ranges from twenty percent to fifty percent by weight of the cement. These studies confirm that (1) the rate of strength development of Class C fly-ash concrete is comparable with that of portland cement concrete; (2) the effect of fly ash content on the shrinkage deformation is not as significant as the effect of water/cement ratio, (3) for a given water/cement ratio, creep deformation is influenced by the fly ash content and (4) con-crete with fly ash content 20 percent replacement show a better freeze-thaw durability than portland cement concrete.
