USE OF HIGH VOLUMES OF CLASS C AND CLASS F FLY ASH IN CONCRETE

Research results concerning the development and use of high volumes of Class C and Class F fly ash in concrete mixes are reported in this paper. Proportionally, the concrete mixes contained 20 and 50 percent Class C fly ash and 40 percent Class F fly ash replacements for Portland cement. The mixes were designed to show their potential for highway paving work. Data were collected on fresh concrete, compressive strength, flexural strength, tensile strength, and freezing and thawing durability. The test results indicate that high volumes of Class C and Class F fly ash produce high-quality, durable pavements in concrete.
