Nondestructive evaluation of reinforced concrete structures affected by alkali-silica reaction and delayed ettringite formation
Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) and delayed ettringite formation (DEF) deterioration have been a problem for the concrete infrastructure in the state of Texas and around the world in recent decades. A great deal of research ...
ASR/DEF-damaged bent caps: shear tests and field implications
Over the last decade, a number of reinforced concrete bent caps within Houston, Texas have exhibited premature concrete damage (cracking, spalling and a loss of material strength) due to alkali-silica reaction (ASR) and/or ...
Experimental investigation of ASR/DEF-induced reinforcing bar fracture
Numerous cases of premature concrete deterioration due to alkali-silica reaction and/or delayed ettringite formation have developed within highway infrastructure in the state of Texas over the past two decades. Although ...
