High Early Strength Fly Ash Concrete for Precast ...

The research was performed at two precast/prestressed concrete plants to identify optimum mixture proportions for production of high early strength concrete with high fly ash contents. Tests were carried out on nominal 5000 psi (34 MPa) concrete utilizing fly ash produced at Wisconsin Electric Power Company's Pleasant Prairie Power Plant.

ACI PRC-232.2-18: Report on the Use of Fly Ash in Concrete

Fly ash is used in concrete and other portland cement-based systems primarily because of its pozzolanic and cementitious properties. These properties contribute to strength gain and are known to improve the performance of fresh and hardened concrete, mortar, and grout. The use of fly ash typically results in more economical concrete construction.

Fly Ash in Concrete Part I Concrete Construction Magazine

A common reason for using fly ash in concrete is to achieve the needed compressive strength at a lower cement content. Replacement of Portland cement by fly ash on a one-for-one basis, either by volume or weight, results in lower compressive strengths at ages up to about 3 months, but greater strengths develop at 6 months and beyond.

Benefits of Using Precast - Sustainability

• Precast concrete is non-combustible, does not melt and therefore does not require additional fire-proofing applications. • Precast concrete does not emit toxic fumes under fire and can limit smoke spreading in buildings. Environmental benefits • Precast concrete is an inert substance which does not emit or give off gases or compounds.

Fly Ash Concrete Producers Separation Technologies LLC

Fly ash chemically binds free lime and salts that can create efflorescence. The lower permeability of concrete with fly ash can help to hold efflorescence-producing compounds inside the concrete. The ball-bearing effect of fly ash in concrete creates a lubricating action when concrete is in its plastic state. This means: Increased workability.

Air Loss in Fly Ash Concrete Concrete Construction Magazine

Loss on ignition (LOI) is a measurement of unburned carbon remaining in the ash. Specifications of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM C 618) for fly ash used in concrete limit the LOI to 6 percent. Values greater than 2 to 3 percent, however, will probably require you to significantly increase the air entraining agent dosage.

History EcoSmart Concrete

The first major documented use of high-volume fly ash concrete in the U.S. was by the Bureau of Reclamation to repair a tunnel spillway at the Hoover Dam in 1942. The second was the Hungry Horse Dam, near Glacier National Park in Montana. Constructed between 1948-52, this massive structure required 2,453,600 square metres of concrete.
