(1997), alkali activation is the term used to imply the alkali ions to stimulate puzzolonic reaction. Xie et al (2008) proposed two processes that control the chemical degradation. Slag is different when compared with other supplementary cementitious materials, when mixed with water; slag develops its own hydraulic reaction. Slag is not

AlkaliAggregate Reactivity Inhibitors Lithium based compounds when used in sufficient quantity are capable of inhibiting damage due to alkalisilica reactivity (ASR). ASR gel has a great capacity to absorb moisture from within the concrete pores.

Most supplementary cementitious materials can reduce internal expansion of concrete due to chemical reactions such as alkali aggregate reaction and sulfate attack. Resistance to freezing and thawing cycles requires the use of air entrained concrete.
One of the reasons associated with concrete durability is an alkaliaggregate reaction (AAR), which is a reaction between alkali of cement and alkalisusceptible aggregate. Rate of this reaction is determined by a type and quantity of alkalis, and type and content of reactive silica.

Alkali aggregate reaction (more of a material problem than environmental) Freezing and thawing damage; Carbonation; Concrete characteristics affecting performance. Porosity and permeability. Durability of concrete is related to its performance in the service environment.
AlkaliSilica Reaction (ASR) • Chemical reactions between the alkali hydroxides in pore solution of concrete and metastable forms of silica in reactive aggregate that forms alkalisilica gel. • Alkalisilica gel is hygroscopic and will absorb water and expand, resulting in expansive pressure and both micro and macrocracking over time.
Sep 20, 2012· There are several different types of cracks, and most of them can be avoided with a proper mix design and best production practices. The following is a .
AlkaliSilica Reactive Aggregates The following aggregate sources have exhibited alkalisilica reactivity in the field and/or laboratory. Concrete mix designs with these aggregates require a pozzolan if the alkalinity of the cement exceeds %, as required by Section 10241(A) of the NCDOT Standard Specifications for Roads and Structures.
• Selection of analysis • Selection of Materials Properties. • Properties affected by "state of the art" for materials, mix designs, and construction methodology. • Typical mass concrete properties • Static vs. dynamic properties • Effects of aging. • Alkali aggregate reaction • Freezing and thawing deterioration • Sulfate attack • Corrosion.
lkali silica reaction (ASR) is a con crete durability problem whereby certain forms of silica in aggregates react in high alkaline pore solutions in con crete to form a reaction product that expands in the presence of moisture and results in deleterious cracking of concrete.
Possible Causes. All PCC will shrink as it sets and cures, therefore shrinkage cracks are expected in rigid pavement and provisions for their control are made. However, uncontrolled shrinkage cracking can indicate: Contraction joints sawed too late.
