In terms of advancements in concrete technology the driving forces have been durability and speed of construction. However the environmental impact of construction materials is becoming an increasingly important driver. In this paper Mehta evaluates concrete technologies using the criteria of construction speed durability and environmental impact. One of the technologies he examines is high volume fly ash and slag concrete particularly in terms of their use in structural concretes roller compacted concrete dams concrete pavement for highways and base courses and embankments.
