 This book is not an academic treatise. It will provide a cursory look at the history, economics, and performance effects of fly ash in concrete, but mainly is intended to provide practical guidelines for those who want to use it. Here you will find some basic do's and don'ts for ready-mix suppliers, concrete contractors, engineers, and others involved in concrete construction. Those who want more detailed material on any subject-and there's plenty available-can find references in the back of this book. Using HFAC is not rocket science, but neither is it obvious or intuitive. Now, however, you can now learn from the experience of others before using it yourself.

Reject fly ash (rFA) represents a significant portion of the fly ashes produced from coal-fired power plants. Due to the high carbon content and large particle mean diameter, rFA is not utilized in the construction sector (for example, as supplementary cementing material) and is currently dumped into landfills, thus representing an additional environmental burden. Recently, the feasibility of using rFA12 in a relatively small number of applications, like solidification/stabilization of other wastes, has been investigated by different researchers.

However, as the overall amount of fly ash utilized in such applications is still limited, there is a need to investigate other possibilities for 14 rFA utilization starting from a deeper understanding of its properties. In the work presented herein, mechanical and hydration properties of cementitious materials prepared by blending the coarse fraction of a lignite high-calcium fly ash with ordinary cement were monitored and compared with the respective ones of a good quality fly ash–cement mixture. The results of this work reveal that a relatively cheap, bilateral classification–grinding method is able to promote the pozzolanic behavior of the rFAs, so that the overall performances of rFA containing cements are drastically improved. The evaluation of these results supports the belief that appropriate utilization of non-standardized materials may lead to new environmental-friendly products of superior quality.

This paper describes the experimental tests and results obtained from incorporating coal combustion products (ashes) into both cold bituminous emulsion mixtures (CBEMs) and hot bituminous mixtures. The coal ashes used were fly ash and furnace bottom ash (FBA). The fly ash was used as filler in both the CBEMs and the hot mixtures. The FBA was used as a fine aggregate substitute in the hot mixtures.

This paper describes the continued optimisation of Bitublock. This is a building block incorporating aggregate sourced exclusively from by-product / recycled / waste materials and which uses bitumen as the binder. Successful Bitublock mix designs can incorporate a range of materials including fly ash (PFA); furnace bottom ash (FBA); and other waste materials such as crushed glass and steel slag. Two types of bitumen were tested in this investigation namely a 50 penetration bitumen and a hard H 80/90 bitumen.

 Over the years there has been a growing demand for finer, more accurately sized and Quality Assured particulate-materials to meet the material specifications of industry. To some extent this has been due to a better understanding of the function that the complete size distribution of a material, and not just some aspect of it, contributes to the performance of a powder when applied to a particular process.
