An investigative study on physical sulfate attack and alkali-silica reaction test methods
This thesis is unique in that it investigated two completely different forms of concrete deterioration: physical sulfate attack and the alkali-silica reaction (ASR). Research was undertaken to better understand physical ...
Experimental studies of the behavior of 'pessimum' aggregates in different test procedures used to evaluate the alkali reactivity of aggregates in concrete
Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a common deterioration mechanism responsible for numerous concrete durability issues. Since ASR was first discovered in the 1940's, a significant number of investigations have been carried ...
