Effect of Fly Ash on the Sulfate Resistance of Concrete
Concrete containing high-calcium fly ash is vulnerable to sulfate attack, but in some regions this type of fly ash is abundantly available and represents a valuable resource to the construction industry.
This research is aimed at improving the sulfate resistance of concrete containing high-calcium fly ash and elucidating the mechanisms control the performance of fly ash concrete exposed to sulfates.
The project includes the following studies:
This project is being funded by Texas DOT (through collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin).
