Alkali-Silica Reaction in Concrete

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

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.

In the pdf-file five detailed project descriptions are presented.
