Fundamental Properties of Concrete Using Casting Foundry Fly Ash as an Admixture ;;;
Disposal of casting foundry fly ash generally depends on reclamation up to the present. This is the great loss from a standpoint of saving resources and utilizing industrial wastes. Therefore, a study on the reuse of fly ash as a substitute material for construction is necessary in order to utilize industrial wastes, to reduce cost and improve quality in producing concrete products, and to protect environment from pollution. In this study, methods for the reuse of the casting foundry fly ash, industrial wastes products, as an admixture for concrete are discussed. For this purpose, fly ash was extracted from casting foundry and tests of physical and chemical properties are executed. Also, various characteristics of concrete using fly ash as an admixture are experimented. Finally, the reuse methods for casting foundry fly ash are presented.
