From our previous and ongoing ECSC research works, we are convinced that it is possible to associate different coal ashes for making binders having very good performance. For example, we succeed in making standard mortars reaching more than 50mpa compression strength by using only sand, water and coal ashes. Moreover, the sand/ash mortar beams swelled less under water than the reference sand /CEM cement mortar beams. The heat of hydration measure d on mortars by the Langavants method was four less with the sand/ash mortar than with the sand/cement one.
