Abstract:
Most test procedures used to measure the effect of alkali reaction upon E-type of glass fibers in cement matrices bear little relationship between the test and actual field conditions. This paper seeks to establish a more meaningful test procedure and to demonstrate, as a result, that commercially available E-type of glass fibers may be safely formulated in cement matrices.
