Article summary:

1. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal combustion and is widely used in the cement and concrete industries to improve performance characteristics. However, more than 70% of fly ash produced globally is not used, posing a disposal challenge and extra costs for power plants.

2. The partial replacement of Portland cement with fly ash can promote sustainability by lowering CO2 emissions and decreasing expenses associated with producing concrete and disposing of fly ash. It also improves the fresh properties and hardened performance of the hydrated product, resulting in superior concrete systems.

3. Ready-mixed concrete containing fly ash is widely used in infrastructure systems, but increasing discharge duration and number of drum revolutions can affect workability, leading to improper placement and consolidation that decreases compressive strength and durability. Improved workability can reduce construction expenses.
