Topic: Pozzolanic ash

In the News (Tue 15 Apr 14)

  Coal Fly Ash - Material Description
The fly ash produced from the burning of pulverized coal in a coal-fired boiler is a fine-grained, powdery particulate material that is carried off in the flue gas and usually collected from the flue gas by means of electrostatic precipitators, baghouses, or mechanical collection devices such as cyclones.
Fly ash is useful in many applications because it is a pozzolan, meaning it is a siliceous or alumino-siliceous material that, when in a finely divided form and in the presence of water, will combine with calcium hydroxide (from lime, Portland cement, or kiln dust) to form cementitious compounds.
Fly ash that is produced from the burning of anthracite or bituminous coal is typically pozzolanic and is referred to as a Class F fly ash if it meets the chemical composition and physical requirements specified in ASTM C618.

 Using Fly Ash in Concrete - MC Magazine Winter 2000 - Concrete Publications - NPCA
Most fly ash is pozzolanic, which means it's a siliceous or siliceous-and-aluminous material that reacts with calcium hydroxide to form a cement.
Typically, fly ash is added to structural concrete at 15-35 percent by weight of the cement, but up to 70 percent is added for mass concrete used in dams, roller-compacted concrete pavements, and parking areas.
Fly ash is considered to have met C618's requirements if the 7- or 28-day strength of a sample with 20 percent fly ash reaches 75 percent of the control strength in an ASTM C109 test.
www.precast.org /publications/mc/TechArticles/00_Winter_FlyAsh.htm   (1906 words)

This percentage is obtained by dividing the mass of fly ash in a cubic meter of concrete by the sum of all cementing and pozzolanic materials the mix.
Pozzolanic does not promote or endorse such high uses of fly ash but encourages continued investigation into the appropriateness of higher uses of fly ash in highly engineered and monitored concrete applications.
Fly ash improves the engineering properties of concrete and lowers the environmental impact of any project it is used on, typically without impacting the costs associated with the job.

 Pozzolans, Pompeii, Naples, Thera, Santorini, Lost Atlantis, and Sophia Loren Concrete Construction - Find Articles
Pozzolans usually serve three purposes: (1) they increase strength and decrease permeability; (2) their use makes concrete a patriotic material because it serves as a useful "dump" for waste products; and (3) they provide an economic advantage by lowering concrete costs (because they are cheaper than portland cement).
Fly ash (fine, usually spherical particles that formerly were emitted from electric utility smoke stacks but now are captured) and volcanic ash are two widely used pozzolans.
The word pozzolan is an Anglicized version of the Latin word pozzulana that was primarily applied to the volcanic ash (a glassy, dust-like material) from the eruptions of Mt. Vesuvius collected near the base of the volcano.

 Development of Bottom Ash as Pozzolanic Material   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Bottom ash, which was rarely used in concrete due to its inactive pozzolanic reaction, improved its quality by grinding until the particle size retained on Sieve 325 was less than 5% by weight.
Compressive strengths of mortar containing 20–30% of bottom ash as cement replacement were much less than that of cement mortar at all ages, but the use of ground bottom ash produced higher compressive strength than the cement mortar after 60 days.
When ground bottom ash was used at a 20% replacement of cement to make concrete, the concrete with higher cement content produced higher percentage compressive strength as well as a higher development rate than those of the low cement content concretes.

 What is Coal Ash?
Fly ash is the fine powder formed from the mineral matter in coal, consisting of the noncombustible matter in coal plus a small amount of carbon that remains from incomplete combustion.
Fly ash is generally light tan in color and consists mostly of silt-sized and clay-sized glassy spheres.
Bottom ash is a coarse, granular, incombustible byproduct that is collected from the bottom of furnaces that burn coal for the generation of steam, the production of electric power, or both.

 ACI 232.2R Use of Fly Ash in Concrete - IHS, Inc
Fly ash, a by-product from the combustion of pulverized coal, is widely used as a cementitious and pozzolanic ingredient in hydraulic cement concrete.
In subsequent research, Davis and colleagues studied the reactivity of fly ash with calcium and alkali hydroxides in portland-cement paste and the ability of fly ash to act as a preventive measure against deleterious alkaii-aggregate reactions.
Fly ash is now used in concrete for many reasons, including improvements in workability of fresh concrete, reduction in temperature rise during initial hydration, improved resistance to sulfates, reduced expansion due to alkali-silica reaction, and contnbutions to the durability and strength of hardened concrete.

 Concrete Topics -- Boral Material Technologies
Workability and placeability of concrete is typically improved with the inclusion of fly ash because the fly ash particles are spherical in nature and act as ball bearings.
A pozzolan is defined by ASTM as a siliceous or alumino-siliceous material which itself possesses little or no cementitious value but will, in finely divided form and in the presence of moisture, react with calcium hydroxide at ordinary temperatures to form compounds possessing cementitious properties.
ASTM C 618 classifies the types of fly ash as either Class C or Class F. Class C fly ashes have higher amounts of calcium oxide and hence are cementitious as well as pozzolanic whereas Class F fly ashes are only pozzolanic.

 Coal Fly Ash - User Guideline - Portland Cement Concrete
The relative resistance of fly ash to sulfate deterioration is reportedly a function of the ratio of calcium oxide to iron oxide.
Fly ash, especially Class F fly ash, is effective in three ways in substantially reducing alkali-silica expansion: 1) it produces a denser, less permeable concrete; 2) when used as a cement replacement it reduces total alkali content by reducing the Portland cement; and 3) alkalis react with fly ash instead of reactive silica aggregates.
When fly ash is used as a separately batched material, trial mixes should be made using a water-cement plus fly ash (w/c+f) ratio, sometimes referred to as the water-cementitious ratio, instead of the conventional w/c ratio.

Fly ash is a pozzolanic material and has been classified into two classes, F and C, based on the chemical composition of the fly ash.
However, fly ash that are produced from the same source and which have very similar chemical composition, can have significantly different ash mineralogies depending on the coal combustion technology used.
Since the lime content of class F fly ash is relatively low, addition of lime is necessary for hydration reaction with the pozzolans of the fly ash.

Some pozzolans, for various reasons, are also expensive, but the most abundant and widely available, fly ash, is not, and typically costs about half as much by weight as cement.
Class C fly ashes are in themselves mildly cementitious, and have been combined with lime or even calcium carbonate soils to produce moderately strong concretes.
Both classes of fly ash are restricted by the 1997 UBC to 25% of cementitious material "in special exposure conditions" (section 1904), but this restriction is widely interpreted to apply to concrete in all conditions.

 Pozzolana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pozzolana, also known as pozzolanic ash, is a fine, sandy volcanic ash, originally discovered and dug in Italy at Pozzuoli in the region around Vesuvius, but later at a number of other sites.
Modern pozzolanic cements are a mix of natural or industrial pozzolans and Portland cement.
Some industrial sources of materials with pozzolanic properties are: Class F (silicious) fly ash from coal fired power plants, silica fume from silicon production, rice husk ash from rice paddy-fields (agriculture), and metakaolin from oil sands operations.
