USE OF FLY-ASH IN CONCRETE BY THE ALABAMA HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT

SEVERAL CONCRETE BRIDGES AND PAVEMENTS CONTAINING FLY ASH AS AN ADMIXTURE TO THE CONCRETE WERE CONSTRUCTED IN ALABAMA BETWEEN 1955 AND 1963. RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTAL TESTS ON THE FLY ASH AND CONCRETE CONTAINING FLY ASH ARE INCLUDED TO ILLUSTRATE SOME OF THE REACTIONS EXPECTED TO HAPPEN IN THESE CONCRETE STRUCTURES. THE MIXTURE PROPORTIONS, MIXING AND PLACEMENT CHARACTERISTICS, AND TEST RESULTS OF THE CONCRETE ARE GIVEN TO EXPLAIN SOME OF THE PROBLEMS AND ADVANTAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF FLY ASH AS AN ADMIXTURE IN CONCRETE. THE ECONOMY OF FLY ASH AS AN ADMIXTURE IN CONCRETE IS DISCUSSED. CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN FROM THE DATA ON THE STRUCTURES.
