    resolve the influence of the aggregate properties. The strength of the concrete could not be accounted for by the strength of the aggregates only. and it is suggested that the absorption and pozzolanic activity of the aggregates could influence the strength developed.

    97103702 The effect of particle volume fraction on the mechanical properties of aluminum-fly ash MMC Liu, X. and Nilmani, M. Process. Prep. Appl. Cast Met. Matrix Compos. Proc. Symp., 1996, 297-305. Edited by Rohatgi. P. K. Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, Warrendale, PA. A low-cost full liquid route was used to produce aluminium-fly ash metal matrix composite (fly ash MMC) of A380 alloy. The tensile strength and hardness properties of up to 20% (volume) fly ash particles (microspheres) MMC were measured. An image processing technique determined the volume fraction and the distribution of fly ash microspheres. Both the tensile strength and the hardness of the fly ash MMC decrease with increasing microsphere volume fraction, which is likely due to the presence of porosity and debonding. The microstructure of the fracture surface of the tensile test specimens suggests that debonding between the microspheres and aluminium matrix is the main reason for this lowering of the mechanical properties. However, strength to weight ratio of the fly ash MMC is similar or marginally better than the pure alloy. The fly ash MMC density was 15% to 20% lower than the matrix alloy.

    97103784 Factors influencing flow and strength of standard mortars and reappraisal of ASTM test methods for fly ash Helmuth, R. Cem. Concr. Aggregates, 1996, 18, (2). 98-111. Tests for fly ash or natural pozzolans sampling and testing for use as a mineral admixture in Portland-cement concrete were modified (ASTM C 311). Pozzolanic (Strength) Activity Index tests with five fly ashes and two portland cements were done to compare results with those of standard tests. With varying sand contents strengths of 38C cured mortars decreased for different cement/fly ash blends. When water contents were varied, strengths varied, tending to increase because of paste volume increases with water content. Flow of mortars in both kinds of tests increase nearly linearly with paste volume fractions. Accelerated curing at 38C for tests at 28 days usually yields higher relative strengths than after curing at 23C for 91 days. Multiple linear regression equations using both kinds of test data were solved at specified flow and strength values to determine proportions and mortar volume yields. This more general performance test ranks fly ashes by mortar volume yield at equal flow and strength, and is proposed as a replacement to the present Strength Activity Index test.

    97103785 FGD by-product production at Petersburg Station Wolsiffer, S. and Wedig, C. FGD Synth. Gypsum, Int. Conf, [Proc.], 5rh, 1997, 911-10. Edited by Luckevich, L. M. et al., ORTECH. Mississauga, Ontario. Since the late 197Os, lndianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) has operated limestone-based SOZ removal systems at the Petersburg Generat- ing Station. The four-unit coal-fired station is the base load generation capacity for the IPL electricity system. The boilers are all equipped with flue gas desulfurization (FGD) equipment. Various FGD vendors and process designs are used, and the plant produces both sulfite and gypsum by-product materials. The various FGD by-products are both landfilled on site and sold for the manufacture of wallboard. Operating experience relative to the different FGD system designs and by-product production unique to this site-specific situation are presented.

    97103786 Fixation of radioactive cesium by utilizing fly ash Korea Institute of Atomic Energy Jpn. Kokai Tokkyo Koho JP 09,132,408 [97,132,4081 (Cl. COlB33/00), 20 May 1997, KR Appl. 9,539,590, 3 Nov 1995, 3 pp. (In Japanese) Compounds of gas-phase caesium were reacted with porous collecting material made from coal ash, at 700-1300C to fix radioactive cesium in a form of cesium aluminosilicate.

    97103787 Fly ash in concrete Xu, A. Waste Mater. Clsed Concr. Manuf., 1997, 142-183. Edited by Chandra, S. Noyes, Westwood, N. J. Mechanisms and behaviour of fly ashes in concrete form the basis of this paper. Characterization of fly ash and hypotheses on hydration mechanisms for cement systems containing fly ash are discussed.

    97103788 Growth of forages on acid soil amended with flue gas desulfurization byproducts Clark, R. B. et al. Fuel, 1997, 76, (8). 771-775. Experiments were carried out to assess beneficial or detrimental plant growth effects when flue gas desulfurization by-products (FGD-BPS) are applied to acid soil. Tests were conducted in a greenhouse to determine growth of forages on an acid pH 4.6 soil with different levels of three FGD- BPS and chemical-grade calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate and calcium sulfite. The FGD-BPS tested were high-CaSO,,, high-CaSOd enriched with Mg, and high-CaSOs. Use of -2.5% of high-CaS04 FGD-BP + Mg

    incorporated into soil mixes yielded the maximum total plant dry matter (DM). DM decreased at higher levels of addition. The results are presented in detail. The FGD-BPS used in this study benefited forage growth when added at appropriate levels.
