UTILIZATION OF WASTE BOILER ASH IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION IN ARIZONA. PART I. PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE

Waste fly ash is produced by several coal-fired power generating plants in and adjacent to Arizona. A literature search, laboratory test program and analysis of test data indicate that available fly ashes can be advantageously used as admixtures in portland cement concrete for highway construction. Compressive strength, flexural strength, resistance to sulfate attack and freeze-thaw durability are included in the laboratory test series. Test data are used in the development of a mix design procedure aimed at optimizing the proportions of fly ash and portland cement.
