Role of test method in detection of alkalisilica

Oct 05, 2018 · Based on the experimental results, it appears that aggregates with potential alkalisilica damage may be characterised as non-reactive if the appropriate test method is not adopted. The findings indicate that the ASTM C 1260 procedure is more effective in determining the reactivity potential of marginally to moderately reactive aggregates.

Alkali-aggregate reaction is the expansive reaction that takes place in PCC between alkali (contained in the cement paste) and elements within an aggregate. The most common is an alkali-silica reaction. This reaction, which occurs to some extent in most PCC, can result in map or pattern cracking (see Figure 1), surface popouts and spalling if
