Abstract:
There is a strong need for developing rapid and reliable test methods and procedures for designing alkali-silica reaction (ASR) resistant concrete mixtures. To address this need and overcome limitations of the current ASR testing and mitigation protocols, the authors propose two new test methods and a performance-based approach for design of ASR-resistant mixtures.
