Influence of Cementitious Materials on Shrinkage of Bridge Deck Concrete

Burns, Cooley, Dennis proposes to test thirty concrete mixtures to determine the influence of source of portland cement and source fly ash on shrinkage and cracking of concrete bridge decks. Six sources of portland cement will be selected and used to develop six mixtures with 100 percent portland cement. Four sources of Class C and Class F fly ash will be selected and combined with one of the sources of portland cement to develop twenty-four mixtures using fly ash to replace portland cement. Replacement rates for fly ash will be 15%, 20%, and 25%.
