Determining an Aggregate's Potential for Forming Alkali-Silica Reactivity (ASR) Gels in Concrete

Project Information

Project ID: 
FHWA-PROJ-11-0069
Project Abstract: 

The broad objective of this project is to understand the fundamental changes that take place when the alkali-silica reaction is accelerated. It is anticipated that this research will be instrumental to providing fundamental information regarding changes induced in the mechanism of the alkali-silica reactivity (ASR) reaction by accelerating it under aggressive laboratory conditions. This will in turn aid in the design of a more reliable rapid test method with better correlation to field performance.
