Title: Properties and Use of Fly Ash in
Portland Cement Concrete
Author(s): R. 0. Lane and J. F. Best
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 81-92
Keywords: chemical analysis; economics; fly ash:
fresh concretes; hardened concretes; mix proportion-ing;
no-slump concrete; pozzolan cements; proper-ties;
pumped concrete; tests.
Abstract:Summarizes the Tennessee Valley Authority’s over 25 years’ experience in using fly ash in concrete mixtures. Physical and chemical properties of fly ash and their effects on freshly mixed and hardened concrete are discussed, and engineering parameters of concrete contaning fly ash are evaluated. A procedure for mix-proportioning of fly ash concrete is also presented along with sample calculations for a typical mixture. Special applications such as zero-slump concrete and pumped concrete are also discussed.
