The results of the 28-day tests aren't meeting the target compressive strength. We believe it's due to the strength retarding properties of fly ash in the mix. Assuming the 56-day test meets the target; are there any implications to long-term durability (40 year service life) with utilizing concrete that met it's target strength late? The foundation won't be loaded until the target strength is met.
