The literature dealing with the expansion of concrete due to alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is reviewed and experimental work currently in progress at the Cement & Concrete Association is described. It is shown that concrete containing a reactive aggregate and a UK cement is unlikely to exhibit deleterious expansion due to ASR if the alkali content of the concrete, expressed as equivalent Na20, is less than 4 kg/m3.

Timber frame housing The use of timber frame housing still tends to be regarded, in this country, as innovatory, even though more than 500 000 houses have been built using this method during the last 20 years and it is common practice in many other countries. However, it has recently attracted considerable comment by the media, much of it ill-informed. Mr Phillip Reece has now written seeking a better understanding of the practical options open when the alternatives are described simply as brick and timber. He points out that: Verulam

Colloquium: The Childhood of Prestressing. The Childhood of Prestressing - an Introduction

The subject of prestressing covers a process that is relatively new and the inventor and chief protagonist of which died only 20 years ago-Eugene Freyssinet. Indeed, the major innovations in prestressed concrete, and the notable structures that have resulted, have come about in the last 40 years or so; the ‘childhood’ will therefore deal only with a short time-span, up to about 20 years ago.
