Field Trials of 100% Fly Ash Concrete

This article reports on field trials to verify charging, mixing and placing procedures for concrete with high calcium fly ash as the sole binder. The focus of the first trial was to verify that 100% fly ash concrete could be mixed in a large batch using conventional equipment, and would have the workability, setting time and strength typical of conventional concrete. In the second trial, 100% fly ash concrete was used to construct reinforced precast wall panels. In the third trial, 100% fly ash concrete was transported 50 miles to the job site after it was batched for construction of footings and stem walls. The trials verified that the raw materials can easily be charged into a mixer, mixed thoroughly, discharged, transported, placed and finished. Further research is planned to investigate the 100% fly ash concrete's long-term durability and stability as well as to investigate fundamental methods for selecting mixture properties.
