Peter, J A and Neelamegam, M and Dattatreya, J K and Rajamane, N P (1999) Utilisation of flyash as cement replacement material to produce high performance concrete. In: Proceedings of the National Seminar on Fly Ash Utilisation, February 26-27, 1999, NML Jamshedpur, India.



Disposal of fly ash, a waste product from thermal power plants, is a major problem in India.Many R&D and academic institutions are actively involved in the effective utilisation of flyash in Civil Engineering applications. The Structural Engineering Research Centre (SERC),Chennai has carried out extensive research on utilisation of fly ash in concrete as partial cement replacement material (CRM) since 1975 . Recently, SERC has carried out extensive R&D work on development of High Performance Concrete (HPC) mixes using flyash(FA),ground granulated blast furnace slag(GGBS) and silica fume(SF) as mineral dmixtures,especially to improve the durability characteristics of cement concrete. This paper presents the mechanical and urability properties of different HPC mixes containing fly ash. HPCs using flyash as mineral admixture have been used to evelop precast concrete products such as, non-pressure pipes and heavy duty paver blocks and these developments are eported in this paper.
