Optimizing the Use of Fly Ash in Concrete

Dr. Thomas begins by introducing the reader to the sources, functionality and history of fly ash use as a supplementary cementitious material in concrete. The publication discusses issues related to using low to very high levels of fly ash in concrete and provides guidance for the use of fly ash without compromising the construction process or the quality of the finished product. This pamphlet includes five pages of references and related publications as well as numerous illustrations and figures diagramming implications of temperature, compression, permeability and strength related to use of fly ash in concrete. It also offers several case studies. Softcover.
