ABSTRACT
Replacing 100 percent of portland cement with fly ash to produce concrete has long been considered something remarkable in the comfort of highly controlled laboratory conditions, but impossible for practical large field applications. While this perception still remains for many, the reality has changed; activated fly ash cement can--and is--substituting portland cemen t concretes in many applications, including ready-mixed concrete, with added benefits such as low shrinkage, and resistance to corrosive acids and high temperature.
