Lithium Technology Research Studies and Reports for Mitigation of Alkali-Silica Reactivity (ASR) in Concrete

Project Information

Project ID:
FHWA-PROJ-02-0004
Project Abstract:

Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a significant durability problem that has resulted in premature deterioration of various types of concrete structures in the United States and throughout the world. The proposed study is to provide practitioners with the necessary information and guidance to test, specify, and use lithium compounds in new concrete construction, as well as in repair and service life extension applications.
