Formerly known as the Cement and Concrete Association, the British Cement Association is the trade and research organisation that represents the interests of the UK's cement industry. They have range of publications which include fact sheets, technical reports and good practice guides to support the use of concrete and cement in construction. the diagnosis of alkali-silica reaction This report deals primarily with the diagnosis of the alkali silica reaction and the assessment of the role this reaction has . Alkali Silica Reaction - Diagnosis. Hobbs () recommends answering each of the following questions before pronouncing alkali-silica reaction as the original corrosion perpetrator. Is the map cracking or oriented cracking characteristic of that caused by ASR? Has expansion occurred? Measurements could be taken or the structure could be. Report on the Diagnosis, Prognosis, and Mitigation of Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) in Transportation Structures Alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR) is only one of the many factors that might be fully or partly responsible for the deterioration and premature loss in serviceability of concrete by:

  This is a summary paper focused on the diagnosis of the alkali–aggregate reaction (AAR) in concrete in practice. Rather than broadly attributing a crack to AAR, this paper provides guidance for a p Author: M.R. de Rooij. Two types of AAR reaction are currently recognized depending on the nature of the reactive mineral; alkali- silica reaction (ASR) involves various types of reactive silica (SiO. 2) minerals and alkali-carbonate reaction (ACR) involves certain types of dolomitic rocks .

Rønning eCited by:   Alkali-Silica Reaction: Causes and Solutions Alkali-silica reactivity, better known as ASR, has been with us since the early s. To lessen ASR problems use low-alkali portland cement or incorporate pozzolans.

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus. The reaction mechanism consists of several successive steps: initial attack of OH − compounds on the SiO 2 at the aggregate–cement paste boundary; formation of silanol groups at the SiO 2 surface; formation of siloxane groups, and their polymerization; adsorption of alkaline and Ca 2+ ions. The alkali–silica reaction, more commonly known as "concrete cancer", is a swelling reaction that occurs over time in concrete between the highly alkaline cement paste and the reactive non-crystalline silica found in many common aggregates, given sufficient moisture. This reaction causes the expansion of the altered aggregate by the formation of a soluble and viscous gel of sodium silicate. This .
