STRENGTH AND DURABILITY OF CONCRETE CONTAINING CHICAGO FLY ASH

RESULTS OF LABORATORY TESTS INDICATE THE STRENGTH THAT CAN BE OBTAINED WHEN VARIOUS AMOUNTS OF CHICAGO FLY ASH ARE USED IN CONCRETE MIXES UNDER VARIOUS CONDITIONS. RESULTS OF A GROUP OF FREEZING AND THAWING TESTS SHOW THAT AIR-ENTRAINED CONCRETE MADE WITH AND WITHOUT CHICAGO FLY ASH ARE EQUALLY FROST RESISTANT. CHICAGO FLY ASH IN CONCRETE MADE WITH TYPE I PORTLAND CEMENT INCREASED RESISTANCE TO ATTACK BY SULFURIC ACID. THE TESTS WERE CONFINED TO FLY ASH FROM ONE ELECTRIC UTILITY COMPANY IN CHICAGO AND ARE NOT NECESSARILY APPLICABLE TO FLY ASHES FROM OTHER SOURCES. /AUTHOR/
