What is Alkali-Aggregate Reaction? Learn Applications ...

Presence of reactive minerals in aggregate; and; Sufficient moisture supply (at least 80 percent). If any one of these three conditions is not met, expansion due to AAR cannot occur. Therefore with aggregates falling in deleterious zone, Use of low alkali cement is recommended to prevent any chances of ASR occurrence.

Activation of alkali-silica reactivity under microwave ...

2021-3-9  The alkali-silica reaction (ASR), developed in the presence of reactive mineral aggregates, is responsible for numerous cases of cracking and consequent deterioration of concrete structures. This work presents a contribution to the development of a chemical method for the activation of the alkali-silica reactivity of an aggregate in its commercial granulometry,

Alkali–aggregate reaction - ScienceDirect

2019-1-1  Aggregate petrography is of chief concern. The use of petrography is essential to confirm whether cracking in a structure is AAR-related or not. It is also very useful for an initial indication of the likelihood of AAR occurring with a given aggregate source, by the process of identifying possibly alkali-reactive minerals in the aggregate.
