The results of studies undertaken into the compositional and physical characteristics of a wide spectrum of UK fly ashes, and some from overseas, are examined in conjunction with data available from the literature. No direct relationship was found to exist between the compositional nature of a fly ash and its behaviour in concrete. It is demonstrated that for a correctly designed concrete, the grade of ash does not significantly affect its engineering properties, but only the cement savings that can be achieved.
