The degree of expansion as a result od ASR include the alkali content of the cement, quantity of reactive aggregate, particle size, moisture content of the concrete, temperature and the permeability of the concrete.

Maxim discusses the following topics:

  • Requirements used in the design of new infrastructure to limit alkali-silica reaction.
  • Alkali activated materials.
  • Chemical composistion of binders.
  • Case study.
