The bulk flow properties of four different fly ashes were assessed at ambient temperature and at 500. Â°C, using a high temperature annular shear cell. These powders all resulted from industrial processes and had similar chemical compositions but different particle size distributions. Applying a high temperature was found to increase the powder cohesion, with this effect being more significant in the case of the sample with the highest proportion of fines. To better understand the effect of temperature on the bulk flow properties of these materials, a model previously proposed by some of the authors was used to correlate the powder isostatic tensile strength with the interparticle forces and microscale particle contact structure. This model combines the continuum approach with description of particle-to-particle interactions. A comparison with experimental data indicated that the effects of consolidation and temperature on the tensile strength of the fly ashes were correctly described by the model. This theoretical approach also elucidates the mechanism by which the temperature affects the bulk flow properties of fly ashes through modifications of the microscale interparticle contacts.
