Use of High Volume Fly Ash Concrete at the Liu Centre

This paper gives an overview of the properties of high-volume fly ash -hvfa- concrete and presents the results of the work associated with the use of this type of concrete for the construction of the Liu Centre. The paper also describes the results of a laboratory study on the same materials that were used for construction at the Liu Centre and concludes that the hvfa concrete was used successfully both in the laboratory and in the field using conventional concreting practices.
