Engineering properties of petroleum coke ash

Engineering properties of petroleum coke ash

Engineering properties of petroleum coke ash

(OP)
I am searching for resources regarding petroleum coke fly ash and bottom ash.  Our goal is to prepare a testing program for our client to determine the properties of the ash and their applicability for various construction uses (ie. subgrade stabilization).  I am particularly looking for sources that discuss material testing, material properties, and how these propeties effect field performance.  

I would appreciate any information with regards to this topic.
 Thanks

There are a substantial number of sources on "fly ash".
Firstly, try to check "Fly ash resource info" at
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Launchpad/2095/flyash.html
Also at
Amer. Coal ash assoc : http://www.acaa.org
or European Assoc. of by-products : http://www.ecoba.com

Also.. look at the following papers (sorry, some are old papers):

FLY ASH
Indraratna,B. , Nutalaya, P., Koo, K. S., and Kuganenthira, N.   1991   “Engineering
behaviour of a low carbon, pozzolanic fly ash and its potential as a construction fill”.
Canadian Geotechnical Journal, Vol. 28, No. 4, August 1991, pp 542-555.

M.H. MacKay, D.K. Hein and J.J. Emery “Water Content and Drainage Effects on the
Behavior of Coal Fly Ash Embankment”, 45th Canadian Geotechnical Conference :
Innovation, Conservation and Renovation, October 26-28, 1992, Toronto, Ontario,
Canada.

Kinder DL, Morrison, RE, “An engineering approah for using power plant ash in a
structural Fill”, Proceedings 5th International Ash Utilization Symposium, Feb 25-
27,1979, Technical  Information  Centre, US Dept. Energy.

Samuel Ng, “Experience with Geotechnical Methods for Design of Flyash
Embankments and Structural Fills”, Proc. 5th International Ash Utilization Symposium,
Feb 25-27, 1979

Bacon, LD ,”Fly ash for Construction of Highway Embankments”, Proc. 4th International
Ash Utilization Symposium, St. Louis, MO March 1976, Energy Research and
Development administration, Morgantown, West VA, MERC/SP-76/4

Joshi, RC , Duncan, DM, Durbin, WL , “Performance Records of Fly ash as a
Construction Materials”, Proc. 4th International Ash Utilization Symposium, St. Louis.
MO, March 1976

Lamb, DW, Hermann, W and Pizzella,J , “Fly ash as Construction Material for Water
Retaining Structures”, Proc. 4th International Ash Utilization Symposium, St. Louis. MO,
March 1976

Lamb, DW, “ Ash Disposal in Dams, Mounds, Structural fills, and Retaining Walls”,
Proc. 3rd International Ash Utilization Symposium, Pittsburgh, PA, March 1973

Finally... look at ASCE
http://www.asce.org/cedbsrch.html
use "fly ash" as KEYWORD  and then "SEARCH"

Hope that this helps
