Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a compact little book that should be required reading for all Architects, Engineers, and Builders. Concrete made with some Fly Ash has very few down sides and many advantages over concrete made with only Portland Cement. As an architect I see little reason to ever specify concrete without using some fly ash in every mix. I was surprised to learn when talking with local ready mix concrete suppliers that fly ash is a standard component of their everyday mix designs unless there is a special request to eliminate it.

A super little book. Really helpful explanations on why fly ash makes for such good concrete, how it's eco-friendly and practical tips from the field on how to get the most from it. Highly recommend.
