[PDF] OPTIMIZATION OF FLY ASH IN CONCRETE : High

This research paper seeks to optimize the benefits of using High Lime fly ash in concrete as a replacement for large proportions of cement. High Lime fly ash is a type of sub-bituminous fly ash that is self-cementing as well as pozzolanic in nature. High Lime fly ash would be categorized as a Class C fly ash by ASTM because of its high calcium content, however its sulfur content exceeds the ...
