The Disadvantages of Fly Ash in Concrete Hunker

Fly ash is a byproduct from coal fired power plants that is frequently used as an admixture in concrete to replace a portion of the Portland cement Using fly ash in concrete is environmentally beneficial because it reduces the Portland cement (a major contributor of CO2) required in concrete

The effect of fly ash composition on the expansion

· There appears to be some relationship between the CaO content of the fly ash and the expansion of concrete prisms for fly ash with a low to moderate alkali level ( < Na 2 O e) There is a slight increase in the expansion as the CaO content increases ranging from 5 to 20 with a sudden and remarkable increase above 20 22 CaO
