Abstract: In this paper,abrasion of high volume fly ash (HVFA) concretes made with 50%and 70%of cement replacement with fly ash was assessed in terms of its relation to flexural tensile strength.
Comparisons were made between normal Portland cement (NPC)concrete and fly ash concrete.
Comparisons were also made between fly ash concretes.
Investigation results have shown that the abrasion resistance increased as flexural tensile strength increased.
Analysis of the results showed that,for concrete with tensile strength of greater than 4~5 MPa,the abrasion resistance of HVFA concrete with 70%replacement with cement was found to be higher than that of counterpart control NPC concrete and concrete made with 50% fly ash.
The comparison between the relation of abrasion to compressive strength and abrasion to flexural tensile strength made in terms of R(2) of the linear regression showed that a stronger relation existed between abrasion and flexural tensile strength than that of abrasion to compressive strength of the concrete studied.
