ASH V SULPHATES IN BATTLE FOR BETTER CONCRETE

The author examines the renewed interest being shown in the use of pulverised fuel ash (pfa) as a replacement for portland cement. The advantages of using pfa are listed and include savings on imports and energy and environmental benefits in addition to sulphate-resistance qualities. Pfa is examined from the point of view of cement manufacturers and users and drawbacks are pointed out, a major one of which is variability. Consideration is given to past experience of the use of pfa in Britain and the success of the method abroad. /TRRL/
