Properties of high-calcium and low-calcium fly ash

Sep 01, 2019 Fly ash is an aluminosilicate material that is widely used for the preparation of geopolymer composites, especially low-calcium fly ash (LCF) (Nath and Sarker, 2017). In fact, one of the most important benefits of using fly ash for geopolymer synthesis is its easy availability compared to other source materials ( Mehta and Siddique, 2017 ).

Effects of low- and high-calcium fly ash on the water

Jan 10, 2020 The use of high-calcium fly ash (H-FA, Class C) produced by burning the lignite or sub-bituminous coal in Portland cement materials is limited due to problems such as the volume stability and durability caused by the high content of CaO and sulfur .

CONCRETE Optimizing the Use of Fly Ash in Concrete

calcium content of the fly ash as shown in Table 3. The calcium content of the fly ash is perhaps the best indicator of how the fly ash will behave in concrete (Thomas 1999), although other compounds such as the alkalis (Na 2 O and K 2 O), carbon (usually measured as LOI), and sulfate (SO 3) can also affect the performance of the fly ash. Low

Aug 10, 2019 In this paper, the performance of MOSC with low-calcium fly ash (L-FA) and high-calcium fly ash (H-FA) was investigated, including the setting times, compressive strengths, shrinkages, compositions and microstructures. The results show that adding FA to MOSC can accelerate the hydration reaction and improve the volume stability of the MOSC paste.

Mar 20, 2019 By contrast, high-calcium fly ash contains reactive phases i.e., calcium-rich phases primarily and to a small extent its vitreous phase (for the high-calcium fly ash used here) thermodynamically less stable than kaolinite and therefore easier to dissolve. That is why reaction sequences are faster for both high-calcium fly ash systems.

Sulfate resistance of high calcium fly ash concrete NASA/ADS

Comparatively, fly ash mixes containing inert crystalline phases such as quartz, mullite and hematite offered good sulfate resistance. The analysis of hydrated lime-fly ash pastes confirmed that fly ash mortar or concrete mixes forming more monosulfate than ettringite before exposure to sulfates would offer poor sulfate resistance and vice versa.
