Particular reference is made to the structural steelwork, of which the major part is fabricated from high yield stress steel to BS 968, and the measures taken to control the quality of the material.

-consider the relevance of tests on mortar prisms and cubes to the risk of ASR damage
-consider the scale effects of concrete samples on the risk of ASR damage
-examine evidence from concrete that has been damaged by ASR
