Alkali-silica reaction in concrete will in many cases lead to
unacceptable cracking and expansion of concrete. Cracking due to ASR can lead
to severe deterioration, resulting in uncertainties about the structural
integrity of reinforced structures. In combination with other degradation
mechanisms such as frost action and reinforcement corrosion the deterioration
of the concrete structure will often be accelerated. Despite the fact that
alkali-silica reaction has been researched for decades and still is a main
topic in the concrete research field today, there is still a large uncertainty
upon the physical, mechanical and structural consequences of the reaction.
