Durability Performance of Concrete Containing CFBC Fly Ash and Coal-Fired Fly Ash
This study presents an investigation into durability performance of concrete with various combinations of circulating fluidized bed combustion (CFBC) fly ash and coal-fired fly ash. All cylindrical specimens with the same binder content of 420 kg/m3 and water/binder ratio of 0.5 were cast and cured in the saturated limewater. Permeability test, sulfate attack resistance test, rapid chloride ion penetration test (RCPT) and carbonization test were performed. Test results demonstrate that the adding of CFBC fly ash and coal-fired fly ash would reduce the water permeability and chloride ions penetration, and increase the sulfate attack resistance, but an increase in carbonization depth. The carbonization depth increases with an increasing contents of CFBC fly ash and coal-fired fly ash. There exists a negative relationship between compressive strength and carbonization rate. Based on the test results, CFBC fly ash and coal-fired fly ash can be considered as cement replacement materials and employed in concrete.
