Consider mixtures with good slump retention performance without delayed setting times to address delivery-time variations. Consider job-site admixture (water reducer) addition with qualified personnel at the job site to address delivery time and air content variations. On a daily basis, QA/­QC personnel can utilize the slump measurements at the plant prior to any water addition after batching as a quality assurance tool to ensure that the mixing-­water content is within tolerance. 5 Variation in Concrete Strength and Air Content Due to Fly Ash This chapter discusses concrete strength and air content variability due to variations of fly ash in a single source.

Note the amount of water that can be added at the job site so that design water content is not exceeded. Truck operators should be required to record job-site water addition and to obtain the signature of the purchaser or representative on the delivery ticket. Ensure measuring devices on truck water tanks comply with the NRMCA Plant Certification accuracy requirements. 9°C) increase in the concrete temperature over the design temperature. 4°C). Consider mixtures with good slump retention performance without delayed setting times to address delivery-time variations.

2 mL/100 kg of cementitious. Fly ashes F1, F2, F3 are plotted together. fly ash C1. Concrete testing was not conducted in this experimental study but it would be of interest how this range of mortar strengths would translate to concrete strengths. In the earlier chapter on cement variation, it was shown that, for the same cement source, strengths of mortar cubes tested according to ASTM C109 correlated well with strengths of concrete cylinders tested according to ASTM C39. 7 Effect on fly ash mortar air content at a fixed AEA dosage due to relative density: (a) fly ash F1, (b) fly ash F2, (c) fly ash F3, and (d) fly ash C1.
