Abstract

This paper describes a study carried out on the use of PFA to BS EN 450: 1995 as a binder component in concrete. In particular, strength development and the durability of concrete that follows the guidance in BS 5328: Part 1: 1991, were studied. The results of strength development tests show that PFA fineness has an influence on strength, with a gradual reduction with decreasing fineness, as percentage retained on a 45-
