The physical-chemical testing of fly ashes indicates that, under normal operating conditions, a low variability of results can be expected from a particular generating plant unit. However, unannounced changes in coal source and/or plant operations do occur and they may result in an ash with undesirable properties. Since these properties can be detected by physical-chemical testing, it is recommended that this testing be performed on a lot-by-lot basis when a plant is supplying fly ash to a construction project.
