STRENGTHS AND DEFORMATIONS OF SINTERED FLY ASH CONCRETE AND ITS APPLICATION TO BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

THE DEAD WEIGHT OF REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES CAN BE REDUCED BY REDUCING THE BULK DENSITY OF THE CONCRETE EMPLOYED, I.E., BY USING LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATES WHICH GIVE CONCRETES HAVING ADEQUATE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND FLEXURAL STRENGTH, AN ACCEPTABLE MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, GOOD BOND AND PERMANENT RESISTANCE TO THE ACTION OF WEATHER, WITHOUT EXCESSIVE SHRINKAGE AND CREEP. IT IS SHOWN THAT CONCRETE MADE WITH SINTERED FLY ASH AGGREGATE IS SUITABLE FOR CONCRETE CONSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES. A SAVING IN DEAD WEIGHT OF AROUND 30% CAN BE OBTAINED WITH STRUCTURES CONSTRUCTED ENTIRELY OF SINTERED FLYASH CONCRETE. HOWEVER, BEFORE THIS CONCRETE CAN BE EXTENSIVELY USED FOR STRUCTURAL WORK, IT IS NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE THE BOND BETWEEN THE CONCRETE AND STEEL AND TO ASCERTAIN ITS DEFORMATION UNDER SUSTAINED LOAD. THE MANUFACTURE OF THE SINTERED FLY ASH, ITS PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES, AND THE PROCEDURE FOR MAKING SINTERED FLY ASH CONCRETE ARE DISCUSSED. THE WEATHER RESISTANCE, THE STRENGTH PROPERTIES, THE DEFORMATIONS AND THE USE OF CONCRETE MADE WITH SINTERED FLY ASH AGGREGATE IN BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION ARE EXAMINED.
