Title: Prestressed Concrete Members Affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction
Author(s): C. A. Rogers and T. Tharamabala
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 35-39
Keywords: alkali-aggregate reactions; beams (supports); bending moments; bonding; compressive strength; cracking; fracturing; petrography; prestressed concrete; railroad ties; tests; General
Abstract:Describes a program of testing railroad ties that exhibited cracking due to alkali-aggregate reaction. The program was undertaken to determine a relationship between a system of visual condition rating and the strength of the ties. This relationship is meant to give approximate estimates of load capacity of similarly prestressed girder bridges.
