Methods for Evaluating Fly Ash for Use in Highway Concrete

This report presents recommended changes to coal fly ash specifications and test protocols contained in AASHTO Standard Specifications for Transportation Materials and Methods of Sampling and Testing (AASHTO M 295). These changes include modifications to the test methods currently specified for evaluating acceptability of fly ash for use in highway concrete as well as the introduction of new test methods for enhancing such evaluations. The modified specifications and test protocols will guide materials engineers and fly ash producers in evaluating fly ash and assuring that highway concrete is enhanced, and not deleteriously affected, by replacing a portion of the cement in the concrete mixture with fly ash. The information contained in the report will be of immediate interest to state materials engineers and others involved in specifying and evaluating concrete mixtures for use in highway pavements and structures.
